Don Moses president of Hitech Fiberglass and the designer, builder and operator of the Mana Spirit for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said, “The AuraGen is the nicest generator I have used; quiet, small and good reliability-carried spares but never really have to use them.  The Auragen provides huge power for a small amount of space, one foot total in front of each of our Cummins Marine engines for each AuraGen generator; and the electronic Control Unit box went upfront in our electronics cabinet.  The AuraGens powered all of our equipment flawlessly-sensitive computers, magnetometers, side-scan sonar, receiver, radio, depth recorder, weather fax-while at the same time operating 110 Volt air conditioner compressor, refrigerator and 220 Volt scuba air compressor”.   

The 93 foot hovercraft, built by Kvichak Marine/Seattle Boatyard named the Suna-X, features a 24,000 Watt power system based on the use of three 8kW AuraGens per ship. The ship is the first of a series of deliveries of this design whose main functions are rapid medical evacuations across eight-mile wide Cold Bay--a stretch of water that has no natural harbors, is open to storm-force winds, and can freeze in winter.  This is the largest hovercraft ever built in the US and the first to be Coast Guard-certified as a Sub-Chapter T class, to carry 49 passengers.

The Coast Guard awarded a contract to replace its 190 fleet of 25-year-old response boats; the contract was awarded to Kvichak who partnered with Marinette Marine.   Kvichak, a Seattle-based design and construction firm, has been making everything from catamarans to hovercraft since 1981 and Marinette, makes large steel vessels.  Aura will supply a Dual Viper configuration consisting of two G8500XM VIPERs per boat providing all AC and DC power including alternator replacement. The system will provide 16,000 watts of continuous power/18,000 watts of peak power at engine idle. The continuous power can be up to 16,000 watts of 120/240 VAC, or a combination of up to 250 amps at 28VDC in addition to 9,000 watts AC.
