Calash is pleased to announce that it provided commercial due diligence to private equity investor Vespa Capital on its investment into Eserv, a leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) business that provides its 3D digital twin technology to owners/operators of complex assets.

Founded in 2015 by Dan Millard, Aberdeen-headquartered Eserv has grown into a leading provider of digital twin services to the energy sector in the UK, Europe and beyond. Vespa will support Dan and the team in the next phase of growth for the technology company. The investment will enable Eserv to drive international growth, augment the team, and to further expand the capabilities of its AS-TEG platform.

Calash provided commercial due diligence on the deal on behalf of Vespa Capital.
