Dredgers

General

For years ABC has been the first choice of many dredging companies operating globally. In this highly competitive market, it is essential for these companies that they can count on a highly reliable and reactive partner. In heavy-duty applications such as dredging and land reclamation projects, people work 24/7. Reliability and continuous operation is essential for the success of each project.

The characteristic, high reliability of ABC engines ensures a safe investment. They are built with continuous operation, low fuel and lube oil consumption and longer maintenance intervals in mind. Our engines have been developed for maximum usability and designed in such a way that they can be maintained and overhauled in a smooth and simple manner.

ABC engines have all modern sensors and operating systems can be controlled with a touchscreen from the bridge. But they remain 100% mechanical, making them easier to maintain and more reliable. We call this "SMART": Simple, Mechanical, Affordable, Reliable and Tailormade according to your requirements.

Another strong feature of ABC's engines is the presence of increasing or continuous torque at slowing speed. The axial turbocharging and the principle of medium speed engines with a relatively low brake mean effective pressure (BMEP), offers advantages in many applications, including the dredging industry. For example, the ABC torque curve offers an answer to sudden fluctuations in the load (e.g. pumping up of sludge). This results in a more stable and efficient usage and a more sustainable operation of the engine.

Our efficient engines can work different types of fuel and fuel qualities. In addition to Marine Diesel Oil (MDO) or Marine Gas Oil (MGO), ABC engines can also be adapted for use with heavy fuel oil (HFO) or for operation in dual fuel (diesel pilot injection with LNG or CNG) mode.

All these matters have a significant influence on the operational costs of your company. ABC‘s total life-cycle costs are far more advantageous than high speed engines.

The primary aim of our engineers is to offer you the best and most economical solution to meet the technical specifications of your newbuild or repowering project.
