Aspin Kemp & Associates (AKA) is a systems integrator and technology company focusing on high reliability and energy efficiency in diesel, island, renewable and micro grid power solutions. AKA innovates, manufactures, installs and supports power generation and energy assets for marine, offshore Oil and Gas, and land based industries.
Our achievements include the world’s first hybrid powered tug boat, world’s first hybrid offshore drilling system, and world’s first power plant to be certified by DNV to operate DP3 Closed Bus. AKA has shifted the paradigm for fuel efficiency in offshore drilling and marine propulsion with proven fuel savings over 40%.
AKA has formed a strategic partnership with MAN Energy Solutions. Jointly, they offer turnkey integrated power, propulsion and microgrid solutions; providing added value and reduced project and operational risk from project inception throughout the entire lifecycle.
AKA Hybrid Marine Propulsion System
AKA’s Hybrid Marine Propulsion System has captured the attention of the marine industry with significant economic and environmental savings. The AKA hybrid system configures the most effective power and propulsion options to meet the needs of the vessel’s operation. The multiple system configurations also provide redundancy by offering alternate sources of power to the vessel.Applicable to a wide range of vessels, the hybrid system presents a clean and simple solution that is customizable to a vessel’s power and propulsion requirements.Come see us at our booth to discuss your hybrid and electric propulsion needs.
AKA High Reliability Power Plant
AKA improves the reliability and increases the availability of conventional offshore and marine power plants. AKA has shifted the paradigm for fuel efficiency in these industries. Our High Reliability Power Plant includes; Advanced Generator Protection (AGP) with DP3 Closed Bus Operation, High Availability Distribution Bus, Advanced Thruster Control and Protection System (ATCAP), Pre-Magnetization System, Autonomous Tie Breaker, Hybrid Drillfloor, Uninterruptible Power Supply System (UPS), Emergency Generator and E-Bus Control.AKA’s high reliability power plant is the world’s first DNV certified system to operate in DP3 closed bus configuration and includes the world's first Hybrid Drillfloor. The system uses energy storage to level load demands on the power plant.
AKA Solid State Generator
AKA’s solid state generator is an innovative energy storage bridging system. It is built upon AKA’s advanced active front end (AFE) power conversion design integrated with energy storage technology to suit the application. The system oﬀers bi-directional power flow, shaves short-duration peak loads and provides instantaneous cycle smoothing for large step load increases or when an existing source is lost (e.g. failure of a diesel gen).The solid state generator provides supplemental power and redundancy while reducing system inefficiencies and achieving fuel and emission savings.The “drop-in-place” design of the solid state generator enables a simplified and efficient integration into the existing power plant while the vessels are in service.
