Floating cranes

General

Floating cranes and harbor cranes on the quay, on a pontoon or on a vessel, are used for lifting heavy loads. ABC, with more than a century of engine building expertise, has equipped several floating and harbor cranes over the past years.

ABC engines and generating sets stand for reliability and great performance under the hardest and most demanding conditions while still offering low fuel and lube oil consumption. Together with the ease to install, it makes our engines the first choice of many operators and users around the world.

A high total cylinder volume, a mechanical or common rail fuel injection system (depending on engine type) and an increasing torque curve at decreasing engine speed are just some of the main technical advantages of our 6-, 8-, 12- and 16-cylinder engines. Additionally, ABC engines have a low brake mean effective pressure (BMEP), ensuring a higher reliability and lifetime of the engine. Our engines have all modern sensors and operating systems and can be controlled from a touchscreen (optional).

As important as the performance is the easy maintenance, ensuring long periods between overhauling and offering an engine with a low engine noise level for a user-friendly work space. The characteristic medium speed up to 1,000 rpm and cleverly engineered distribution of the loads ensure a high mechanical performance and therefore guarantees the longevity of the engine and its components.

All these matters have a significant influence on the operational costs of your company. The total life-cycle costs of our medium-speed engines are far more advantageous compared to 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 project.
