MAN Energy Solutions and Rolls-Royce’s business unit Power Systems are set to collaborate on an asset and fleet management system that provides a collection of data in one place. The two companies signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to work together on the new system.
The system, known as mýa, serves a digital platform that pools OEM, asset owner and operator data across the power, energy and marine industries. mýa members would be able to access that data from a single interface, providing them with a complete view of their systems.
“I’m very happy that a major player such as Rolls-Royce has chosen to join the mýa organization and to support the platform’s development,” said Dr. Uwe Lauber, CEO of MAN Energy Solutions. “With the launch of mýa, we want to reduce complexity for our customers, and other OEMs alike, and to lower the hurdles for getting payback from data.”
MAN Energy Solutions and other founding members plan to create an independent, non-profit organization to govern mýa and promote industry collaboration to widely accept the benefits of digital technology.
“Our mission is to work together to further develop and promote the mýa platform in support of our own digital products and services. Using mýa technology, we’ll be able to provide data for our customers within a single platform,” said Andreas Schell, CEO of Power Systems. “And we’re very keen to move forward on this because we see it as a major milestone in our development. At the same time, this initiative can only take off if other suppliers and industry actors also decide to join up.”
