Anglo Belgian Corporation (ABC) has been issued with Bureau Veritas approval and notations for its hybrid solutions.

With the hybrid system’s approval, ABC is able to offer serial hybrid propulsion systems for workboats and, in collaboration with selected industrial partners, believes it can serve as a one-stop shop for complete propulsion systems for its customers.

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.

The approval incorporates a new BV notation, ‘Electric-Hybrid’, released by Bureau Veritas in July.
