Rolls-Royce Power Systems and MAN Energy Solutions have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to collaborate on mýa, the open asset and fleet management system.
The move is the latest by Rolls-Royce to explore digital innovation and follows the launch earlier this year of Yocova, a new data exchange and collaboration platform for the aviation sector by the Rolls-Royce data innovation catalyst R2 Data Labs.
“Our mission is to work together to further develop and promote the mýa platform in support of our own digital products and services,” said Andreas Schell, chief executive of Rolls-Royce Power Systems. “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,” he added.
MAN Energy Solutions launched mýa, an open digital platform enabling the integration of OEM data across the marine, power and energy industries, in February 2020. Members of mýa will have the opportunity to access their digital assets via a single interface that integrates all OEM data-streams and enables a complete system-view.
Dr Uwe Lauber, chief executive 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.”
