New launch from Emerson to help producers navigate the emerging sustainable energy economy3 February 2023
Emerson has announced the launch of Ovation Green, a dedicated renewable power technology and software portfolio designed to help power generation companies meet the needs of customers navigating the transition to green energy generation and storage.
By uniting the recently acquired Mita-Teknik software and technology with its own Ovation automation platform, Emerson has created a new extension of its power-based control architecture.
Renewable electricity capacity has seen record growth in recent years. However, transitioning to cleaner energy systems or scaling up existing ones is a complex undertaking for power producers. Wind turbines, solar arrays, lithium-ion batteries, hydrogen electrolysers and hydroelectric power all use a wide variety of automation software and technologies. As renewable portfolios grow, the number of applied technologies will multiply, increasing learning curves and adding complexity to operations as solutions from different vendors require additional integration. While some existing systems can provide layers of connectivity between very specific assets, the Ovation Green portfolio will deliver a single set of purpose-built software and solutions that supports different technologies in one standardised, intuitive system.
“Countries around the globe are focused on transitioning to a clean energy economy in the coming decades, and while green energy is a simple concept everyone understands, the road to implementation is not always clear,” said Bob Yeager, president of Emerson’s power and water solutions. “With the Ovation Green portfolio, our software, support and solutions are unified in one system from a single trusted provider to help power producers more quickly, easily and reliably manage their renewable electricity operations.”
Full access to real-time and historical operations information empowers owners and operators with greater visibility and control of all renewable assets across the enterprise, said the company. Through an integrated portfolio of data-driven asset control and management solutions, Ovation Green technologies provide secure, standardised access to data, independent of equipment manufacturer or system type, across a single or multiple sites.
