MAN Diesel & Turbo and AKA will collaborate for the first time to deliver a diesel-electric propulsion package.

The order, for a multi-purpose supply vessel commissioned by a federal Russian agency, marks the first time the companies have worked together since MAN Diesel & Turbo bought a 40% share in electric-and-hybrid-systems company AKA in June.

Wayne Jones, chief sales officer at MAN Diesel & Turbo, said: “This specialist vessel, with its unique operational demands, showcases MAN Diesel & Turbo’s competence as a solution provider and the broader capability we now possess with AKA’s energy-management expertise.”

Package components

The package comprises 4 × MAN 7L21/31 GenSets, including alternators.

AKA will provide a complete 690V main switchboard, 690V-to-400V transformers, electric motors for main props and thrusters, frequency converters for electric motors and the drive control and power-management systems.

Mr Jones added: “Encouragingly for our new partnership, the previous vessel in this series was equipped with an identical propulsion package, but from a different supplier.”

Delivery of the equipment is scheduled for March 2018 in St Petersburg.

The partnership with AKA represents part of MAN Diesel & Turbo’s strategic development programme to cater for decarbonisation activities and the changing needs of digitisation.
