MAN Energy Solutions and Samsung sign strategic digitization agreement MAN Energy Solutions and Samsung Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. have signed a strategic cooperation agreement for the digitization of marine engines. 

Together the companies want to define a framework for a long term strategic cooperation in order to develop technologies and systems for the digitization of marine engines.

“Digital technologies and the business models based on these technologies will transform the maritime industry. Samsung Heavy Industries is an important part of this industry and an important business partner for us. It makes sense to bring our experts together and explore how best to work in synch with our digital value creation chain. It is our firm belief that cross industry cooperation is essential to the success of the digital transition, and we continue to take an active role in driving this with our partners”, said Brian Østergaard Sørensen, Head of R&D 2-Stroke Business at MAN Energy Solutions.

Scope of agreement
The scope of the cooperation will be focusing on the following areas:

  • Digitization of marine engine solution data including auxiliary systems
  • Data collection, diagnosis and visualization in relation to marine engine solution performance
  • Design and technology development of an architecture system for marine engine digitization solutions including auxiliary systems
  • Integration between marine engine solutions – smartship platforms and engine diagnostic solutions
  • Testing and verification of research and development results.


MAN CEON – a digital key stone
Digital partnerships are part of MAN Energy Solutions’ digital strategy. A key stone in the strategy is the new platform MAN CEON that intelligently collects and evaluates operating and sensor data, and enables the real-time monitoring of marine or power-plant engines, turbines and compressors.

"MAN CEON is the new backbone of our developing digital-service business," said Per Hansson, Head of Digital and Strategy at MAN Energy Solutions. “Digitization is often reduced to a technical level, but is really about providing more valuable services to our customers. Thanks to MAN CEON, we can provide our customers onshore and on-board with even more timely and insightful support in their daily operations, and optimize the availability and efficiency of their installations.”

The platform integrates data and information from MAN machinery and its operational environment, and uses intelligent analysis tools for evaluation and forecasting. The operating data of all systems and ships connected via CEON can be transmitted to customer sites as well as MAN service centers in real time. From here, MAN experts pro-actively support customers with problem solving and maintenance.
