MAN Energy Solutions and Samsung Heavy Industries have signed an agreement to define a framework for the long-term strategic cooperation to develop technologies and systems for the digitisation of marine engines.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} The cooperation will focus on:

  • Digitisation of marine engine solution data including auxiliary systems
  • Data collection, diagnosis and visualisation in relation to marine engine solution performance
  • Design and technology development of an architecture system for marine engine digitisation solutions including auxiliary systems
  • Integration between marine engine solutions – smartship platforms and engine diagnostic solutions
  • Testing and verification of research and development results.

A key stone in the strategy is the new platform MAN CEON that intelligently collects and evaluates operating and sensor data, and enables the real-time monitoring of marine or power-plant engines, turbines and compressors.

The platform integrates data and information from MAN machinery and its operational environment and uses intelligent analysis tools for evaluation and forecasting. The operating data of all systems and ships connected via CEON can be transmitted to customer sites as well as MAN service centres in real time. From here, MAN experts pro-actively support customers with problem solving and maintenance.

“Digital technologies and the business models based on these technologies will transform the maritime industry. Samsung Heavy Industries is an important part of this industry and an important business partner for us. It makes sense to bring our experts together and explore how best to work in synch with our digital value creation chain. It is our firm belief that cross industry cooperation is essential to the success of the digital transition, and we continue to take an active role in driving this with our partners”, said Brian Østergaard Sørensen, head of R&D 2-Stroke Business at MAN Energy Solutions.

Yong Lae Shim, vice president of SHI Ship and Offshore Research Institute said: “We are committed to providing smartship solutions that are useful to our customers. This agreement with MAN allows us to expand the ecosystem of the SHI's smartship SVESSEL, to further provide practically useful services to ship owners.”

"MAN CEON is the new backbone of our developing digital-service business," said Per Hansson, head of digital and strategy at MAN Energy Solutions. “Digitisation is often reduced to a technical level, but is really about providing more valuable services to our customers. Thanks to MAN CEON, we can provide our customers onshore and on-board with even more timely and insightful support in their daily operations, and optimise the availability and efficiency of their installations.” {/mprestriction}

  • LR and the National Physical Laboratory partner on marine autonomy assurance

    Lloyd's Register (LR) and the UK’s National Physical Laboratory (NPL) have teamed up to collaborate on marine autonomy projects to ensure that appropriate levels of service and competence can be achieved within the maritime industry.

    As part of the framework agreement, the two organisations will collectively establish and enhance the current body of knowledge for marine autonomy. This combination of skills, expertise and experience will be built on to bring clarity to the requirements for the assurance of autonomy and assist stakeholders in realising the potential of these systems in the market.

    This will allow standards to be set and consistently applied and will therefore bring surety to risk management and certification for autonomous and unmanned systems and vessels.

    By partnering with NPL, LR will enhance the delivery of its services and assurance in marine autonomy and gain access to a wide range of knowledge and expertise developed in other aligned domains.

    LR and NPL are currently working together to deliver a scope of services to the THEMIS Project, to demonstrate the feasibility for the world’s largest ocean-going autonomous vessel, which is part funded by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore’s (MPA) Maritime Innovation and Technology (MINT) fund.

    NPL’s head of Digital, Neil Stansfield, said: “The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is excited by the opportunities presented in this collaboration with Lloyd’s Register, where the two organisations complementary capabilities are well suited to addressing the challenge of assuring marine autonomous systems. This work represents an important part of the UK’s national programme to deliver confidence in the intelligent and effective use of data, which is being conducted with a range of partners across sectors and with a specific focus on autonomous systems. NPL is applying a combination of measurement skills, expertise and experience, in areas as diverse as sensor characterisation, data quality and AI validation, to support partners in the development of new tests, standards and regulations for the safety of autonomous systems. This collaboration with Lloyd’s Register will help ensure the UK maintains its global leadership in the marine services Sector, where the autonomous shipping sector is expected to represent a global $52bn market opportunity by 2050.”

    Tim Kent, LR technical director for Marine and Offshore said: “This collaboration with the NPL will allow LR to improve our own processes, knowledge and competency to better support our clients with marine autonomy projects. We are delighted to be partnering with NPL given its domain knowledge on autonomy from the connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV) and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) domains.”
