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
Latest news on digitalization
Norwegian shipowner relies on digital solutions from MAN Energy Solutions
MAN Energy Solutions has announced a new end-2-end reference for its digital service offerings within the key fishing segment. Norwegian trawler/purse seiner, ‘Odd Lundberg’, is a 70-metre vessel owned and operated by the business of the same name.
Built in 2019, the fishing vessel features an MAN propulsion package, including a four-stroke L32/44CR engine, an MAN TCR20 turbocharger and an MAN SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) system, backed up by the MAN PrimeServ Assist data-driven service solution enabling real-time, remote monitoring on the MAN CEON application. A combination of intelligent analytics and MAN experts monitor the propulsion system in real time to detect any emerging issues. Any such issues immediately have their root causes assessed and a solution proposed to Odd Lundberg. To save time, MAN collaborates remotely with the vessel’s chief engineer where possible.
Stian Lundberg, Chief Engineer at Odd Lundberg, said: “We chose MAN Energy Solutions as our solution provider, because of the reliability of their technology and their high quality in data-driven services. What I like most with the PrimeServ Assist service is that the MAN team is helping us monitor the systems via MAN CEON, and making fault finding much easier and less time-consuming, especially for less obvious things. This means that the engineers on board can contribute the saved time to other value-adding tasks of their job.”
Per Hansson, MAN Energy Solutions, Head of Group Digital, said: “MAN’s digital backbone, MAN CEON, helps PrimeServ engineers to address the particular challenges of the fishing business through maximising the reliability and availability of the engine, whilst facilitating ‘green’ fishing with the smallest CO2 footprint and lowest exhaust-gas emissions. This fits well with Odd Lundberg’s mission and vision to provide customers with the environmentally-friendly catching and fresh delivery of fish.”
Highly efficient propulsion with digital solutions
The MAN solution of combining engine and turbocharger with an SCR system ensures compliance with emission regulations and efficiency-optimised operation through a closely integrated control system that coordinates all MAN components. Its feedback system balances engine and SCR output and efficiency, such that engine performance is not impacted by the SCR system, which itself consumes as little urea as possible.
Stefan Eefting, Head of MAN PrimeServ in Augsburg, said: “We have delivered an integrated and optimised system solution to Odd Lundberg. The control system enables us to optimise fuel consumption and urea usage while remaining within emission limits and providing the expected engine performance. During operation, the PrimeServ Assist engineers are continuously evaluating and offering advice to optimise engine and SCR efficiency and reliability for Odd Lundberg’s specific operating profile.”
One such example was when remote analysis of machine data detected an irregular SCR performance. Engineers at MAN’s Remote Operation Centers quickly located the problem and advised the Odd Lundberg’s crew on how to fix the problem.
MAN CEON and PrimeServ Assist
The new, digital MAN CEON platform intelligently collects and evaluates operating and sensor data, enabling real-time monitoring of marine or power-plant engines, turbines and compressors. The MAN CEON application visualises data and information from MAN machinery and its operational environment, and provides a wide range of analysis tools for validating existing issues.The data-driven service solution, PrimeServ Assist, leverages the data streams of MAN CEON. With the support of monitoring and analytics functions, Experts in MAN’s Remote Operation Centers pro-actively advise them how to prevent issues ahead of time with step-by-step advice.
