A new model of multi-fuel engine has been added to the medium-speed range designed and produced at Ghent by Anglo Belgian Corporation (ABC). The 6EL23 is the third representative of the groundbreaking Evolve engine platform to be brought to market, and is suited to short-sea, inland waterway and specialised vessel applications in the 1,230-2,160kW power band.

The versatile, in-line six-cylinder unit encapsulates the Evolve concept of providing versatile solutions to the challenges faced by operators in embracing the energy transition. Pivotal to the design is an adaptable cylinder head, which facilitates a switch from liquid fuel to dual fuel, and to 100% gaseous fuels, eliminating the need for a specific fuel commitment.

The 6EL23 joins the inaugural four-cylinder 4EL23 engine introduced towards the end of 2021, followed just over a year later by the 20EV23, 20-cylinder vee-form model, representing the pinnacle of power (7,200kW) within the Evolve line-up.
