Anglo Belgian Corporation (ABC), a Ghent based manufacturer of medium speed engines, has been issued with the Bureau Veritas approval and notations for its hybrid solutions.
“Now, with the hybrid system’s approval by major classification company Bureau Veritas, ABC is able to offer serial hybrid propulsion systems for workboats and, in collaboration with selected industrial partners, can serve as a one-stop shop for complete propulsion systems for its customers,” said the company.
The approval makes it possible for the company to offer a hybrid propulsion system with various options including main engines, complete generator sets, power management systems, alternative power sources and even complete propulsion packages.
Tim Berckmoes, CEO of Anglo Belgian Corporation, said: “This ABC Hybrid technology offers our clients an extra technologic advantage leading to zero emissions, higher performance and more flexibility. The Bureau Veritas Electric-Hybrid certificate confirms that the ABC hybrid system is solid and reliable with sufficient redundancies.”
The approval incorporates a brand new BV notation, ‘Electric-Hybrid’ – released by Bureau Veritas in July.
ABC’s propulsion system options will be able to offer three modes described in the new Bureau Veritas notation:
- PM (Power Management mode);
- PB (Power Backup mode);
- ZE (Zero Emission mode).
