Rolls-Royce and MAN Energy Solutions have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to collaborate on mýa, the open asset-and-fleet-management-system enabling the integration of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), asset owner and operator data across multiple industries including marine.

The mýa solution helps existing platforms work together by enabling the exchange of data between OEMs, asset owners and operators. This facilitates better system performance by simplifying the collection of various data from across different platforms and giving a clear view of the performance of various pieces of equipment.

Dr. Uwe Lauber, CEO of MAN Energy Solutions, 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.” Members of mýa will have the opportunity to access all of their digital assets via a single interface that integrates all data-streams from OEMs, asset owners and operators and enables a complete system-view.

Andreas Schell, CEO of Rolls-Royce business unit Power Systems, added: “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.” The hope is that other providers, customers and industry actors will participate in the development and use of the platform.

Jürgen Winterholler, vice-president of Digital IT at the Rolls-Royce business unit Power Systems, explained: “It is our goal to have the best fleet and asset management service for our customers based on the highest data security standards. We will focus on delivering this service through our MTU Go! platform, by cooperating with mýa to set standards across the industry. We are endeavoring to build an open, collaborative culture where asset related data can be shared easily and securely between organisations and companies. We feel the day of technology vendors and manufactures trying to lock customers into their proprietary digital platforms by holding data hostage, is over.”

  • Voyager PLANNING STATION gets major update

    Voyager Worldwide has announced a major upgrade to its Voyager PLANNING STATION navigation software. The new version features enhanced automation of route and passage planning, information sharing between ship and shore and new interactive guided workflow processes to reduce operational risk and streamline navigation processes.

    Voyager PLANNING STATION now automatically delivers digital and paper Notices to Mariners on board as soon as they available. Updates are transmitted via a secure link direct from Voyager Worldwide straight to the Voyager PC onboard to ensure vessels always have the latest information and prevent compliance issues.

    To complement the new fully automated update process, the size of the quarterly AVCS Admiralty Information Overlay update has been reduced by more than 85 per cent from 25MB to an average of 3MB to make ECDIS updating easier, faster and more cost-effective. The result is very simple fully automated electronic delivery of all updates and New Editions and smaller, more cost-effective data downloads that, together, remove any residual need to send physical CDs or DVDs to ships.

    “With its new levels of automation and enhanced user experience, this new version of Voyager PLANNING STATION provides comprehensive visibility of vessels against their planned routes and seamless distribution, updating and management of the data needed for e-Navigation. The result is better operational oversight that helps ship managers to safely and more efficiently manage their vessels and provides a faster, easier way for the bridge team to meet PSC and vetting requirements,” said Voyager Worldwide CEO, Kent Lee.

    In addition, a new built-in port to port routeing function enables users to select their departure and arrival port and generate a route. Routes automatically appear on either ENCs or Voyager’s integrated GIS map making it easy to refine waypoints to meet specific voyage requirements before clicking to identify and order the ENCs and other products needed for safe and compliant passage.

    For shore-based users who want to more clearly understand vessel status compared to the planned voyage, the enhanced Route sharing module now automatically uploads saved routes to Voyager FLEET INSIGHT, Voyager Worldwide’s web platform to allow ship management to monitor vessels on a 24/7 basis. Using Voyager FLEET INSIGHT, vessels can be monitored on a PC in the office as well as on the go via a tablet and smartphone.

    To provide better visibility of vessels’ compliance status and help reduce ECDIS and ENC related PSC observations and deficiencies, Voyager PLANNING STATION also now shows the details of when the ECDIS was last updated and shows when updates have not been applied. Voyager FLEET INSIGHT also enables vessels’ ENC, paper chart and publication orders to be viewed as an overlay on planned routes to enable more efficient order checking and approval and help reduce unnecessary purchasing.

  • Consort Express Lines rolls out Tero Marine's TM Master

    Papua New Guinea based Consort Express Lines has signed a contract with Norwegian technology company Tero Marine to roll out its complete TM Master suite of applications. 

    The agreement also includes 14 tugs owned by Pacific Towing, both companies being part of Steamships Trading Company, within the Swire Group. Tero Marine will provide the companies with its full range of Fleet Management software applications across, Procurement, Maintenance, Crew Management, Quality and Environment.

    Consort operates geared, multipurpose vessels offering scheduled liner services to the 17 main ports in Papua New Guinea.

    “I want to applaud Consort for having the confidence to be making such a progressive move in these uncertain times. I am confident that our TM Master software will help optimise the management and compliance of their fleet. I would like to pay tribute to the professionalism of our knowledgeable team and in particular our colleagues in Singapore that worked hard to win this contract by listening carefully to Consort’s needs and demonstrating that we could satisfy their requirements. We welcome both Consort Express Lines and Pacific Towing to our expanding customer community,” said Rune Lyngaas, Tero Marine’s CEO.

    “There were several reasons for choosing Tero Marine’s TM Master. The most obvious one was its complete product features and functions which suited our internal procedures and business needs. Secondly, TM Master was the most user friendly system so our crews will not have to undergo intensive training sessions,” said Chris De Villiers, COO of Consort Express Lines.

    “Another major factor from our point of view, was the complete understanding by the team at Tero Marine of our requirements regarding our business processes. They were able to provide the right solutions to our needs and were pro-active in everything from pre-project documentation to implementation plan.” he added.

    Mr. De Villiers concluded that “In challenging times like these, we need to focus on keeping the ships sailing. Having a professional partner like we have found in Tero Marine is crucial.”

    “I am delighted to see that our focus on UX (User Experience) in every aspect of how we serve our customers is being acknowledged and rewarded.” Mr Lyngaas added.
