MAN Energy Solutions has selected Amazon Web Services (AWS) as the preferred cloud provider to deliver advanced analytics, machine learning and Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities for the CEON platform.

The MAN CEON digital platform connects MAN equipment across different industries and geographies. It offers customers advice, condition monitoring and repair advice for connected equipment. By choosing AWS, MAN Energy Solutions is executing its strategy to help its customers meet the challenges of decarbonization by improving the efficiency and performance of their assets at a systemic level.

The MAN CEON platform combines the experience of MAN Energy Solutions with the cloud technology portfolio and software expertise of AWS. Using machine learning algorithms, MAN CEON collects and evaluates operating data and enables real-time monitoring of marine engines, turbines and compressors or power plants, all equipped with hundreds of sensors that continuously transmit Datas. This enables MAN experts to detect malfunctions and problems at an early stage and to help customers around the world to operate and maintain their systems.

“MAN CEON is the backbone of our developing digital services business. By building the MAN CEON platform on AWS, we are able to leverage the latest machine learning and IoT managed services to improve our algorithms and adapt our platform to customers around the world,” said Uwe. Lauber, CEO of MAN Energy Solutions. “With MAN CEON, we provide our customers with real-time information and help them manage their system more efficiently.”

MAN Energy Solutions uses AWS IoT Greengrass and AWS IoT Core to run analytics and machine learning at the edge, i.e. on the machine itself, to securely ingest data into the cloud . MAN CEON’s predictive maintenance algorithms are developed and constantly improved using Amazon SageMaker, a fully managed service that helps developers and data scientists quickly build, train, and deploy machine learning models. MAN CEON customers also benefit from AWS’s secure infrastructure, with encryption from the machine to the cloud and all layers of the technology stack.

“As industries seek to improve their operations and become more efficient, they need reliable information to prevent system failures,” said Kathrin Renz, vice president of business development and industries, AWS. “By combining MAN Energy Solutions’ deep expertise in marine, energy and industrial solutions with AWS’s leadership in analytics, machine learning and IoT, customers will be able to achieve new levels of efficiency. operational.

“Working with AWS reinforces our digital vision to deliver advanced and secure digital solutions to transform our business and optimize our customers’ business decisions,” said Gregory Puckett, Head of Digital Group, MAN Energy Solutions.

To further develop the MAN CEON platform, MAN Energy Solutions will employ an enablement strategy that includes hands-on, experiential development programs for its developers, data scientists, and product engineers through AWS Data Lab, AWS GameDay, and training in the AWS classroom of AWS Training and Certification, with a focus on IoT, security, and machine learning technologies.
