Sunday, July 14, 2019 

MAN Energy Solutions, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) and HSD Engine (HSD) have signed a strategic agreement to cooperate in the field of marine engine systems digitisation. Continuing a long relationship, the companies now aim to define a framework for a future long-term strategic digital cooperation.

“MAN Energy Solutions is determined to drive the digital transition of the marine industry”, said Brian Østergaard Sørensen (pictured), Head of R&D 2-Stroke Business, MAN Energy Solutions. “We strongly believe that this transition can best be achieved through cooperation and collaboration including customers and providers across the industry. The agreement at hand is a step in this direction and brings together market leading expertise in the fields of shipbuilding and engine design, manufacturing and operation to explore options for a joint digital development in an important segment of the maritime market.”

K Choi, Head of DSME’s R&D Institute, said: “DSME is conducting R&D activities to combine digital technology to various fields in shipbuilding including collaboration with marine engine makers.” He emphasised the need for continuous innovation to enhance DSME’s reputation as a technological leader.

W Park, Head of Design & R&D, HSD said: “Through this strategic cooperation agreement, HSD will share our own service experiences to DSME and MAN Energy Solution. Furthermore, we will also continue our role as a pioneer engine manufacturer in the field of smart ship in order to serve our customers a real-time monitoring service with remote supports through the advanced engine diagnosis technology and it will consequently give us safer and more economical engine operation accordingly.”

The three companies aim to cooperate in areas such as the digitalisation of marine engine and auxiliary systems data, the collection and analysis of the data and the integration of it with smart ship platforms and intelligent diagnostic solutions.

MAN Energy Solutions has made the digital transition a core element of its corporate strategy and has announced its new digital platform MAN CEON earlier this year. MAN CEON intelligently collects and evaluates operating and sensor data, and enables real-time monitoring.
