­Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces that it has acquired BaxEnergy, a leading provider of renewable energy management solutions (REMS). This acquisition will provide Yokogawa with a proven range of solutions that have already been adopted by major power companies throughout Europe.

The solutions have the unique ability to integrate the management of a wide variety of renewable power generation facilities, and can analyze data from turbines, inverters, and other types of power generation equipment from many different manufacturers to improve power generation efficiency. The BaxEnergy solutions have demonstrated the ability to enhance plant availability by up to 10%. By integrating the management of data in a cloud environment, the solutions enable customers to view customized KPI and alarm information on all kinds of devices, including smartphones and tablets, giving them the information needed to promptly make decisions that will have a direct impact on revenues and capacity utilization.
Simone Massaro, CEO of BaxEnergy, said, “We are proud to now be part of the Yokogawa family. Through this relationship we will be able to scale globally and provide power producers and process industry users with our intelligent data engineering and renewable energy management expertise, delivered through our data infrastructure and ecosystem of applications.”
Regarding the acquisition, Koji Nakaoka, a Yokogawa Electric senior vice president and head of the company's Energy & Sustainability Business Headquarters, said, “Yokogawa contributes to the realization of a resilient and sustainable society by supporting safe and optimal operations throughout the increasingly diversified energy supply chain.
