Spire Global Selected by MAN Energy Solutions to Accelerate Digitalization Across the Maritime Industry
VIENNA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Spire Global, Inc. (NYSE: SPIR) (“Spire” or “the Company”), a global provider of space-based data, analytics and space services, was selected by MAN Energy Solutions (“MAN-ES”), a global player within the marine, energy and industrial sectors, 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 optimized vessel execution and performance management mechanisms, utilizing AIS and weather data for route mapping. MAN-ES’s broad engineering portfolio includes, among many other products, large-bore engines and turbomachinery that aim to optimize efficiency and decarbonize systems.
MAN-ES will integrate Spire AIS and weather data into its digital solution, PrimeServ Assist, a monitoring and advisory tool for the decarbonization and optimization of marine equipment. This integration aims to provide customers with improved performance, maintenance scheduling and decarbonization insights.
In order to further accelerate the rate of digitalization in the maritime industry, MAN-ES and Spire will also collaborate on the development of AI models designed to analyze engine data and create more cost-efficient solutions for its customers.
"Our driving strategy at MAN Energy Solutions revolves around 'moving big things to zero,' which means we aim to help decarbonize key sectors of the global economy through systems that bring down emissions that have been historically hard to abate," said Gregory Puckett, Chief Digital Officer of MAN Energy Solutions. "The enrichment of our product data with Spire’s AIS and weather data will unlock further optimization for our products, and further our goal to improve engine performance and decarbonization."
