Automation software and technologies chosen to
help improve efficiency, safety, emissions and faster
time-to-market for hydrogen-based solutions
MELBOURNE, Australia, July 4, 2023
/PRNewswire/ -- Global technology and software leader Emerson
(NYSE: EMR) today announced that Cavendish Renewable Technology
(CRT), an Australia-based startup
with proprietary hydrogen technologies, will work with Emerson's
automation and software portfolio to accelerate the deployment of
CRT's hydrogen production solutions.
As the world continues to seek sustainable energy alternatives,
hydrogen has emerged as a promising carrier of cleaner energy. With
its immense potential to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions,
hydrogen technologies have become a key focus for researchers,
industries and governments worldwide.
"It's going to be a golden era for hydrogen over the next
decade," said Ani Kulkarni, Ph.D.,
CRT's chief executive officer. "Working with Emerson will enable us
to optimize and scale our operations, which will help accelerate
the global adoption of hydrogen technologies to meet energy targets
and reduce global emissions."
Under the agreement, Emerson will leverage its extensive
automation expertise and portfolio, including software, control
systems, instrumentation, valves and safety solutions, for CRT's
hydrogen electrolysers and ammonia processing equipment.
"Emerson's hydrogen experience and automation technology will
help CRT digitalize its operations for improved safety and
reliability while also accelerating the delivery of its
hydrogen-based products and solutions," said Mike Train, Emerson's senior vice president and
chief sustainability officer.
"Our value proposition is two-fold," said CRT CEO Kulkarni. "Our
proprietary electrolyser technology will enable production of green
hydrogen at scale which we aim will be cost competitive to fossil
fuels, and our ammonia solution can convert ammonia directly into
electricity, a one-step process that uses far less energy than
converting ammonia back into hydrogen before electricity is
