MAN Diesel & Turbo SE (MAN) has announced that it is set to acquire a 40 percentparticipation in Canada-based Aspin Kemp & Associates (AKA), which specialises in power supply, energy management, and drive systems for marine applications.
"The partnership with AKA is a key element in our strategy to strengthen our role as technological forerunner in the field of marine propulsion," said Dr. Uwe Lauber, CEO of MAN.
"AKA's specialised expertise links battery storage systems and marine engines. The new cooperation marks an important step on the way to further establish ourselves as a principal system supplier for energy management on board ships."
The investment is said to align with MAN's strategic development programme, Basecamp 3000+, which was launched in 2016.
