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.”
