MHPS and Emerson collaborate on digital product development

Published on: 

Emerson and Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Americas (MHPS) are developing new digital technologies, software and services. The collaboration on digital solutions is intended to optimize performance and reliability, enable predictive and AI-driven maintenance strategies, and automate operational decision-making.

The collaboration will build on the expertise of Emerson and MHPS to enhance the performance and reliability of power plants operating with MHPS gas or steam turbines.

Emerson’s Ovation automation technologies, software and solutions portfolio for power generation is used in thousands of plants across the world. Its embedded digital twin enables power plants to identify and implement new operating efficiencies, improve safety, decrease unscheduled maintenance and train workers.

MHPS is driving development of next-generation power plants and digital solutions that deliver higher efficiencies to reduce carbon emissions and the highest levels of reliability to lower maintenance costs. Its MHPS-TOMONI digital solutions platform provides real-time adaptive control and actionable knowledge to optimize plant performance and significantly improve reliability.


The two companies will explore these and other technologies such as advanced sensing; thermal; process and equipment modeling and diagnostics; advanced control; analytics; pattern recognition; remote monitoring; digital twin; automated workflows; and AI-driven predictive maintenance.

One of the companies’ collaborations is to build and deploy the next generation of total plant simulation for the Intermountain Power Plant Renewal project, which uses Emerson’s digital twin technology, MHPS’ high-fidelity gas turbine and steam turbine models, and advanced analytics.
