Gamesa has closed the purchase of a 50% shareholding in technology player NEM Solutions from rail company CAF and Basque technology corporation Tecnalia, having received approval for the transaction from the anti-trust authorities.
The transaction makes Gamesa one of the company’s core shareholders, alongside CAF, each with a 50% interest, the company asserts. Gamesa acquired a 35% stake from the rail company and the remaining 15% from Tecnalia, having purchased the latter’s stake outright.
Gamesa says this transaction aligns with the company’s goals for developing services that add significant value for the customer in the predictive maintenance arena and reinforces its commitment to enhancing turbine performance and streamlining maintenance processes and costs.
NEM Solutions develops technological applications for the management of predictive maintenance in the wind and rail sectors. Through its technology platform, AURA, the company analyzes the millions of data points generated by the equipment under maintenance with a view to creating a model that defines normal operating conditions for each piece of equipment. Based on this benchmark, it predicts the future performance of each machine.
Gamesa asserts that in this case, the systems developed by NEM will use the 16 billion data inputs generated and sent daily by the approximately 16,000 turbines under its maintenance (20,600 MW) to the company’s remote control center in Sarriguren, in the Navarre region.
