Engine Development At ABC Shaped By Sustainability

The title of this post, is the same as that on this article on Riviera Maritime Media.

This is the introductory paragraph.

Belgian engine manufacturer ABC is supplying the power for a new ‘green’ oceanographic research vessel, while it continues development of a hydrogen engine.

The article then gives a good summary of the progress being made by ABC  in developing diesel, dual and hydrogen power for ships, based on their existing diesel technology.

  • Their diesel engines will be powering the new Belgian maritime research ship; Belgica.
  • They are developing hydrogen engines up to 10 MW.
  • They aim to have a hydrogen engine working by Q2 2021.
  • They have the capacity to build up to a hundred engines a year.

The company seems to be following an alternative route to decarbonisation, by converting existing large diesel designs to hydrogen.

The article is very much worth a read.
