Inland Waterway Vessels


Inland navigation is inextricably linked to Anglo Belgian Corporation. As early as 1921 inland barges were fitted with ABC engines. Inland waterway vessels exist in many shapes and sizes but all have one thing in common: transporting goods as efficiently and safely as possible from A to B.

Throughout our more than 100-year history, our engines have convinced successive generations of shipowners for their reliability and low fuel and lube oil consumption.

An ABC engine stands for sustainability. As a ship owner, you are well aware that maximizing operational performance depends on the use of reliable products and services. Whether you want to save money on fuel consumption, on maintenance or you want to increase your uptime: the products you use must be of impeccable quality.

Our robust, medium speed engines are built with continuous operation, low consumption and long maintenance intervals in mind. They have been developed for maximum uptime and designed so that they can be maintained in a smooth and simple way. ABC engines comply with all applicable environmental regulations. They can also be supplemented with hybrid propulsion systems.

An ABC engine has all modern sensors and operating systems so that they can be controlled with a with touchscreen from the bridge but they remain 100 % mechanical, making it easier to maintain and more reliable. We call this "SMART": Simple, Mechanical, Affordable, Reliable and Tailormade according to your requirements.

All these matters have a significant influence on the operational costs of your company. The total life-cycle cost of ABC’s medium-speed engines are extremely advantageous compared to high speed engines.

Whether it concerns a newbuild or repowering project: our experienced staff always advise you the best and most economical solution to make your project a success.
