Main propulsion engines

ABC engines can run on different types of fuel and fuel qualities.
Select the fuel type below to find the engine according to your requirements.

  • Diesel, MDO, MGO, HFO, biofuel
    Diesel-HFO Engines-Graph

    Anglo Belgian Corporation (ABC) has over 100 years of expertise in developing and manufacturing main propulsion engines for marine applications. Our medium-speed engine portfolio, with 6- and 8-cylinder inline engines and 12- and 16- cylinder V-engines, covers a power range from 600 kW up to 10,4 MW. They can run on Diesel, HFO (up to RMK 700 cSt.) and biofuels (vegetable oils).

    The characteristic medium-speed engine (600 up to 1000 rpm) and cleverly engineered distribution of the loads ensure a low mechanical deterioration and therefore guarantees a long life of the engine and its components. The total cost of ownership (TCO) of medium-speed engines easily outperforms high-speed engines. This is due to the low fuel and lube oil consumption, the lower frequency of maintenance interventions and general robustness of the medium-speed engine. The benefit is a much lower operating cost.

  • LNG, CNG, biogas
    Dual-Fuel Engines-Graph

    Anglo Belgian Corporation (ABC) has over 100 years of expertise in developing and manufacturing main propulsion engines for marine applications.

    Our medium-speed DZC engine portfolio, with 6- and 8-cylinder inline engines and 12- and 16- cylinder V-engines, covers a power range from 600 kW up to 10,4 MW. These reliable engines are also available in dual fuel configuration, covering a power range from 720 up to 2670 kW.

    ABC has years of experience with dual fuel engines. One of the main advantages of a dual fuel engine is that it can run on diesel oil at any time. This ensures the continuity of the engine in case of unavailability of the main fuel for whatever reason.

    In the case of dual fuel engines, an air/gas mixture is injected into the cylinders, which is then compressed. A small pilot injection with diesel ensures the ignition. Natural gas (CNG or LNG) is more environmentally-friendly and has one of the main advantages that hardly any soot or sulphur dioxide is released during incineration.

    ABC's dual fuel engines have the important advantage that it is a very flexible fuel system where the efficiency increases significantly. The powerful ignition makes it possible to work with different gases of low calorific value and fluctuating ignition characteristics.
