Bhagwan Marine’s newbuild Dive Support Vessel incorporates Aspin Kemp & Associates’ DC bus configuration derived from the company’s XeroPoint Hybrid Marine Propulsion System.

Aspin Kemp & Associates (AKA) was awarded a contract to supply a Diesel-Electric Power and Propulsion System for Bhagwan Marine’s Dive Support Vessel (DSV) that will be constructed in Singapore.

With headquarters in Western Australia, Bhagwan Marine services the oil and gas industry with its fleet of support vessels and landing crafts. Designed by Australian naval architects, Incat Crowther, the vessel will be a 56-meter, fully integrated catamaran that will perform key duties such as Dive Support, Geotechnical Survey, Cargo Transport and Safety Standby.

The Diesel-Electric (D-E) System incorporates AKA’s DC Centric approach used in the company's XeroPoint Hybrid Marine Propulsion System and  it includes a back-up battery system supplied by Corvus Energy. In addition to the D-E system, AKA will provide the energy management system (EMS) for the vessel. As required by Bhagwan Marine, AKA’s highly configurable EMS will provide the vessel with an unprecedented level of operational flexibility and redundancy.

AKA’s Diesel-Electric propulsion system is designed for several customized modes of operation on the DSV, including two “Dynamic Positioning” modes as well as an “Emergency Egress” mode which permits all machinery to be shut down and low speed propulsion and critical hotel loads to be supported by the battery bank.
