Partners win specialist Russian order 

Delivery is scheduled for March 2018 in St. Petersburg and marks the first successful collaboration between the two partners since MAN Diesel & Turbo bought a 40% share in AKA – the electric-and-hybrid-systems company – in June 2017. The order comprises four MAN 7L21/31 GenSets, including alternators, with AKA’s scope of supply for the order covering: 

  • Complete 690V main switchboard. 
  • 690V-to-400V transformers. 
  • Electric motors for main props and thrusters. 
  • Frequency converters for electric motors. 
  • The drive control and power-management systems. 

Wayne Jones, Chief Sales Officer – 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. Encouragingly for our new partnership, the previous vessel in this series was equipped with an identical propulsion package, but from a different supplier.” 

AKA’s CEO, Jason Aspin, said: “We are excited to deliver on this first order together with our new partner, MAN Diesel & Turbo. Our expertise in energy management, and electrical-system integration, combined with MAN’s vast experience in power-train solutions, allows us to deliver a completely integrated power and propulsion system for this vessel, making it a WIN-WIN-WIN between our partnership and this client”.
