Australia's Aurtra acquired by Schneider Electric

Schneider Electric, a company specialising in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, has announced that it has completed the acquisition of Aurtra Pty Ltd, an Australia-based company focused on sensors and software to monitor, analyse and provide actionable insights for oil transformers.

Schneider Electric stated that the investment strengthens its position as a reference digital provider of services across the full electrical distribution value chain.

“With this technology, we help customers avoid catastrophic and expensive transformer failures, optimise their operating expenses on individual or transformer fleets, and ultimately extend transformer life,” said Pedro Robredo, VP, Digital Transformer Services at Schneider Electric.

Aurtra’s HealthSense multi-function sensor is now part of the Schneider Electric services offer portfolio. Schneider Electric will also extend its sales and support channels to cover the Aurtra customer base.

“The team is excited to join the Schneider Electric family and drive digital transformation by integrating world-leading process and energy technologies to realise full efficiency and sustainability opportunities,” said Terry Woodcroft, Aurtra co-founder and CEO, and now Schneider’s Digital Transformer Services Offer Management, Support, and Marketing Lead.
