Rolls-Royce Power Systems has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with MAN Energy Solutions as it joins the mýa digital platform launched by MAN in February. The platform enables the integration of original equipment manufacturers’ data across the marine, power and energy industries. Its founders, including MAN, aim to set up an independent, not-for-profit organisation to govern mýa and promote industry collaboration in digital technologies.
Andreas Schell, CEO of Rolls-Royce business unit Power Systems, commented: “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. 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.“
Speaking on behalf of MAN Energy Solutions, Dr. Uwe Lauber, CEO, said: “I’m very happy that a major player such as Rolls-Royce has chosen to join the mýa organisation and to support the platform’s development. 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.”
