HFO Burning

HFO = Heavy Fuel Oil
The general HFO that is used and available in the ship industry is around 180Cst. The sulfur content in the fuel should not be over 5%. For burning HFO there is a need of several additional equipment such as booster modules, seperators, centrifuges and others. Pricewise of course the HFO is much more interesting than MDO. Please visit our range of HFO burning engines. To be noted that burning HFO has more and more restrictions such as it may not be used in the harbors, close tho the coast, not in the rivers and so on.


  • DX(S)(C) engine: 138 up to 883 kW (600 – 750 rpm)
  • DZC engine: 1032 up to 2000 kW (720 – 1000 rpm)
  • (V)DZC engine: 2064 up to 4000 kW (720 – 1000 rpm)
  • DL36 engine: 3120 up to 5200 kW (600 – 750 rpm)

All the engines in our portfolio are in accordance with the latest emission legislations. Depending on the application, this is IMO TIER-2 (seagoing vessels, tugboats, ferries, …), CCNR-2 (inland vessels) or EU3A for locomotives. All these requirements are satisfied without electronics on the engines and without an exhaust after treatment system resulting in values far better than those of our competitors.

As emissions will be more and more stringent, ABC tends to be already ahead of future emissions restrictions. This is done by continuous improvement in-house using engines especially build for this testing purpose. As a result, the following limit for locomotive applications will be achieved shortly and even TIER-3 – which becomes active in 2016 – has already been obtained with a prototype test set-up. Further internal projects will give our clients the choice between different emission reduction techniques to obtain the desired rule.
