Jan. 17, 2022

To strengthen its presence in renewable energy solutions, Emerson announced Dec. 16 that it's purchased Mita-Teknik in an all-cash transaction. Founded in 1969 and based in Rødkærsbro, Denmark, Mita-Teknik produces control automation for wind power generation, equipping wind turbines and wind farms with technologies for optimal performance and reliability. This acquisition complements Emerson’s control system portfolio, and supports its ability to help customers digitally transform operations and meet sustainability goals.

“Digitalization is critical for the renewable industry sector as power generators increasingly seek improved visibility and maintainability of their systems,” says Mark Bulanda, executive president of Emerson’s Automation Solutions business. “Our world-class power generation capabilities, now amplified by Mita-Teknik’s renewable expertise and technologies, will help power customers accelerate their digital transformation journey to smarter, more sustainable operations.”

Mita-Teknik’s proprietary controls manage wind turbine operations to maximize energy production, while its control software optimizes wind farm output to provide the lowest-cost source of energy. In addition to its OEM technologies, Mita-Teknik serves the fast-growing aftermarket segment by offering retrofit solutions that extend turbine operational life and increase energy production. It's designed control for more than 400 wind turbine models, and participated in an installed base of more than 60,000 systems worldwide. 

“We're proud to be joining Emerson, a company with global reach and proven track record of success in delivering sustainable solutions,” says Jesper Andersen, board chair at Mita-Teknik. “We're excited to pair our wind energy market presence with Emerson’s reputation and reach to expand our ability to serve customers in the global, emerging retrofit market.”

Mike Train, senior VP and chief sustainability officer at Emerson, adds, “Mita-Teknik advances Emerson’s environmental sustainability framework—furthering our greening by initiatives—by supporting our customers’ transitions toward lower carbon using Emerson’s advanced products, expertise and solutions.”
