Hexagon AB’s Acquisition of MDE Network


Mitrani, Caballero & Ruiz Moreno and Leverone Mihura Estrada advised on the transaction

Hexagon’s PPM division, the leading global provider of engineering software for the design, construction and operation of plants, ships and offshore facilities, has acquired MDE Network, SRL, an Argentinian provider of solutions for operations management and optimization.

The MDE Network acquisition expands Hexagon’s direct presence in South America. Hexagon adds an experienced team of professionals who have the knowledge and expertise to capitalize on j5 Operations Management Solutions opportunities in the region. Hexagon will be able to help industrial plants in South America implement solutions to optimize operations management activities using Hexagon’s broad portfolio of products.

MDE Network, headquartered in Buenos Aires, offers innovative solutions that enhance knowledge of the processes for better decision-making, from the operator to a company’s board of directors. It delivers implementation and consulting solutions and services with high quality standards for the improvement of efficiency in the management of industrial operations, based on the concept of Situational Awareness.

MDE Network previously established j5 Operations Management Solutions from Hexagon as a core system for one of Argentina’s most important oil & gas companies. Hexagon intends to combine knowledge from Alas Ingeniería – which it acquired in January 2020 – with the expertise of MDE Network to consolidate its leadership position in the Argentina by expanding its reach in Operations Management.
