Emerson Strengthens Presence in Renewable Energy Sector with Acquisition of Mita-Teknik
Emerson announced it has acquired Mita-Teknik in an all-cash transaction. Founded in 1969, Mita-Teknik is a leader in the control automation business for wind power generation, equipping wind turbines and wind farms with technologies for optimal performance and unsurpassed reliability. This acquisition is highly complementary to Emerson’s existing control system portfolio and supports the company’s ability to help customers in their quest to digitally transform operations and meet sustainability goals.
Mita-Teknik’s proprietary controls manage wind turbine operation to maximize energy production, while their control software optimizes wind farm output to provide the lowest-cost source of energy. In addition to Mita-Teknik’s full portfolio of OEM technologies, they serve the fast-growing aftermarket segment by offering cost-competitive retrofit solutions that extend turbine operational life and increase annual energy production.
Mita-Teknik has a meaningful presence in the growing wind energy industry, with expertise in control design of over 400 wind turbine models and an installed base of more than 60,000 systems worldwide. The acquisition expands Emerson’s renewable power generation automation solutions to the wind power market and enhances its ability to provide more value to global power customers.
