We leverage digitalization
Data based processes and intelligent software allow accurate analytics and unprecdented insights. We at MAN Energy Solutions aim to pioneer a digital transformation using this potential.
This is why we have developed our digital ecosystem and offer digital solutions in all our business areas. By introducing our three digital key products MAN CEON, PrimeServ Assist and mýa, we created a comprehensive digital ecosystem that enables us to collect, combine and evaluate relevant data. This databased ecosystem is our digital backbone and the base for new digital customer centric solutions of the future.

Digital solutions for the marine industry
To promote a more interactive cooperation with ship owners and crews, we at MAN Energy Solutions use digital innovations in the marine industry. Together, we make sure that your systems are always running. Our digital solutions increase the efficiency, safety and availability of MAN products throughout the marine industry.
For example, MAN PrimeServ Assist is a new, proactive maintenance and repair service by MAN. With this service, you get instant, accurate notifications, updates and advice on your fleet or industrial equipment while they are in service.
MAN CEON is our cloud-based customer-user interface for the MAN PrimeServ Assist digital services which provide all data and information on MAN products. This digital platform is accessible on any verified device with an internet connection.
Digital solutions for Energy & Storage
Digitalization is one of the key enablers of the transition towards flexible carbon neutral energy systems. Also, it can help save power generation costs.
With energy production becoming increasingly diverse, there is an ever-growing need for intelligent energy management systems that respond to fluctuations of renewable energy and market price signals. Our energy management systems allow for optimized, cost-efficient and reliable operation of hybrid power systems and microgrids wherever and whenever needed.
Our PrimeServ Assist digital services provide the crucial insights on how to increase equipment efficiency and leverage optimization potentials, thus directly enhancing plant profitability.
Digital solutions for Oil & Gas and the Process Industry
The oil and gas business, chemical or materials industries can and will benefit from the power hidden in the vast quantities of data produced and harvested every single day. MAN Energy Solutions has the expertise to put the data to good use for our customers’ success. Thanks to smart services we can guarantee to avoid downtime, analyze performance and anticipate future needs.
With our digital service agreements, we take the digital capabilities of our customers’ facilities to the next level. PrimeServ Assist e.g. includes remote diagnostics, anomaly detection, while our digital twinning approach offers benefits like individual software solutions with improved quality, simulation-based operator training, increased efficiency and reduced commissioning time.
Digital service solutions
With PrimeServ Assist, we have developed an innovative service for various applications: We use digitalization to offer proactive service and real-time support.
The MAN CEON platform integrates data and information from MAN machinery and its operational environment and uses intelligent real-time analysis tools for evaluation and forecasting, while providing robust connectivity.
However, digitization is not without risks. Network-based systems are increasing vulnerability for cyberattacks that can paralyze entire businesses. Therefore, implementing defensive barriers is an essential element in proactive cybersecurity management. Cybersecurity is crucial for all our service solutions.
Our Digital Center is a central platform to discover advanced system solutions in 3D, meet our dedicated experts online and get inspiration for future market und technological developments. We offer in-depth insights via webinars across all business areas and provide product news and updates on the key developments in our customers’ lines of business

Rolls-Royce Signs MoU for mýa Platform
Andreas Schell, CEO of Rolls-Royce business unit Power Systems, and Dr. Uwe Lauber, CEO of 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 the marine, power and energy industries, among others.
Dr. Uwe Lauber 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 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.
Per Hansson, Head of Digital and Strategy at MAN Energy Solutions, said: “Solution providers offer a plethora of digital solutions for system-performance optimisation, resulting in a complicated, uncoordinated view of the various equipment that vessel and plant operators maintain. Essentially, mýa helps solve this problem by simplifying the retrieval of relevant data from these solutions.”
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.”
mýa encourages existing platforms to work together collaboratively. MAN Energy Solutions launched the mýa digital platform in February 2020, enabling the integration of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), asset owner and operator data across the marine, power and energy industries, among others.The platform enables the exchange of data in a controlled and secure manner among participating OEMs, operators and asset owners. MAN’s and other founding members’ goal is to create an independent, non-profit organisation to govern mýa and promote industry collaboration in realising the benefits of digital technology.
