Splitting 1 large text body into several columns

So I have an issue where I this large chunk of text which I can not transform before I load it into Power BI:

 

"ubff-prd99.74 %98.90 %100.00 %99.78 %cecartsservice-prd81.59 %21.01 %0.00 %88.40%cecustomersservice-prd81.60 %21.05 %0.00 %88.41 %ceservice-prd98.99 %97.99%100.00 %99.37 %cemerchantsservice-prd81.66 %21.30 %0.00 %88.45%ceordersservice-prd81.66 %21.29 %0.00 %88.44 %cepaymentsservice-prd62.40 %21.30%0.00 %76.30 %cepricingservice-prd81.66 %21.30 %0.00 %88.44%ceproductsservice-prd81.66 %21.31 %0.00 %88.44%smt-commerceengine-acl-live82.54 %25.09 %0.00 %89.00%smt-configserver-svc-live82.07 %23.08 %0.00 %88.70 %smt-dashboard-fed-live0.00%0.00 %0.00 %0.00 %smt-dealerships-fed-live0.00 %0.00 %0.00 %0.00%smt-gateway-svc-live82.06 %23.06 %0.00 %88.70 %smt-orders-api-live82.06 %23.04%0.00 %88.69 %smt-orders-fed-live0.00 %0.00 %0.00 %0.00 %smt-pim-acl-live82.06%23.08 %0.00 %88.69 %smt-provisioning-svc-live0.00 %0.00 %0.00 %0.00%smt-settings-api-live82.07 %23.08 %0.00 %88.69 %smt-settings-fed-live0.00 %0.00%0.00 %0.00 %"

 

I want to create a row for each item with the 4 percentages of each item in the next columns in this kind of format:

NamePercentage 1Percentage 2Percentage 3Percentag 4
ubff-prd99.74 %98.90 %100.00 %99.78 %
cecartsservice-prd........
...    

 

How can I do this in the Power Query Editor? 

 

Thanks for any help!
