MAN ES inks Spire Digitalisation deal, targets expanded services
MAN Energy Solutions has selected Spire Global, Inc., a global provider of space-based data, analytics and space services, to provide weather data and real-time automatic identification system (AIS) vessel-tracking data.
According to McKinsey & Co, the shipping industry can decrease fuel consumption by 1% through optimised vessel execution and performance management mechanisms, utilising AIS and weather data for route mapping.
MAN Energy Solutions will accordingly integrate Spire’s AIS and weather data into – among other tools – its digital solution, MAN-CEON, a digital platform used to support monitoring and advisory tools for the decarbonisation and optimisation of marine, power and industrial equipment. This integration aims to provide customers with improved performance, troubleshooting and decarbonisation insights.
