Dave Roberts, senior vice president at Power Factors, said, “We are excited to partner with Yokogawa to deliver our industry-proven Drive platform globally. The suite of solutions enables owners and operators of disparate renewable energy assets to maximize their production and revenue opportunities in ever-changing markets. Merchant, hybrid, hedging, and ancillary services offtake opportunities require complex control and optimization capabilities. Through this agreement, we will combine best-in-class asset performance management with best-in-class instrumentation, automation, and control from Yokogawa.”

Koji Nakaoka, Yokogawa vice president and head of the Global Sales and Industrial Marketing Headquarters, commented, “We have high expectations for the synergies that this agreement with Power Factors will generate, both in terms of technology and market development. Yokogawa has served major power and energy companies worldwide for many decades, and, as the world transitions to renewable energy, we will continue to offer industry-leading solutions to our customers.”

The powerful combination of Yokogawa’s expertise in field sensors, data acquisition, and control with Power Factors’ advanced analytics and APM software will support leading renewables companies as they meet the challenges of efficiently expanding and optimizing renewable energy sources.
