Utility companies

General

The utility industry faces many challenges (increasing energy demands, ageing infrastructure, changing regulations, off-grid shortages, lowering water levels, digital revolution, competition, …) to supply their customer base with even more reliable and cost-effective power. For stable power generation and distribution, privately or publicly owned utility companies need to work with expert partners.

ABC, headquartered in Gent (Belgium), supplies power solutions for power generation. Our reliable, medium speed engines, in combination with an alternator, offer powerful yet economical power generation solutions to those looking for a reliable source of energy. Generator sets based on ABC engines are widely used in thermal power plants. Combined with renewable energy solutions, ABC has grown substantially in the hybrid power market reducing fuel bills and carbon footprint.

Generating electricity using ABC gensets shows that things want to be done correctly and there is no place for mistakes. The reliability of ABC engines is legendary. The medium speed (up to 1000 rpm) and cleverly engineered distribution of loads ensure a low mechanical wear and therefore a long life of the engines and components, extending the periods between overhauling and ensuring long periods of continuous operation. Because in many settings renewables only don’t provide enough stable power, our engines remain a key element of the solution.

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 the general robustness of the medium speed engine. This results in much lower operating costs.

Our in-house engineering support department offers a vast range of cost-effective and customized solutions for organizations seeking to achieve competitive excellence.

Together with our partners we can provide turnkey, hybrid or conventional, power solutions from tank to grid including lines and subcontractors. Check-out our references in rehabilitations or greenfield projects around the world.
