ABC introduces newly developed DL36-Diesel Engine series with 10.000 kW
Anglo Belgian Corporation is one of Europe’s leading medium speed diesel engine manufacturers. The company has a century of experience in ship propulsion, locomotive traction and power generation solutions. The new DL36 range will expand the ABC market to large vessels such as ferries, coasters, offshore vessels, navy applications, dredgers, large tugboats that will be particularly affected by new edicts in designated emission control areas (ECAs). The design enables shipowners to satisfy future, tougher emissions legislations without having to fit exhaust after-treatment plants. With the 6 and 8-cylinder In-Line DL36 (3.900 / 5200 kW) and the soon to follow V-versions (up to 10.400 kW) the company will be able to supply all major shipyards with solutions for any type or size vessels. The DL36 range will also allow the company to be competitive in the 20-80 MW power plant range.
With a bore and stroke of 365 mm by 420 mm, the DL36 will be set to deliver 650 kW/cylinder at 750 rpm with a bmep of only 24 bar, ensuring that the traditional ABC reliability and robustness is maintained. This 650 kW/cylinder makes the new DL-engine the highest power output in its segment. The company anticipates a specific fuel consumption rate of 180 g/kWh at 100% load.
he newly developed ABC DL-diesel engine range delivers 650 kW per cylinder
Introducing innovative technology such as EGR, 2-stage turbo-charging and a radically optimized common rail system, the engine’s emissions are designed to meet the IMO/Tier III requirements without catalyst, maintaining the excellent competitive fuel and oil consumption. For those applications not requiring IMO/Tier III a full mechanical version will remain available. To be as versatile as possible, a wide variety of fuels like MDO, HFO, dual fuel and bio-fuels are possible. The 6- and 8-cylinder in-line engines will focus mainly on the marine market while the V-engines (12 and 16 cylinders) will penetrate also the large generator set applications to be found in thermal power plants as the 16DV36 will produce over 10 MW. With the design and development of this new engine family, ABC confirms the position as a major player on the medium speed engine market.
