Europort 2017: A Great Success!
From the 7th till the 10th of November, ABATO was present at the Europort Convention in Ahoy Rotterdam. A nice opportunity for us to display our products and services at an international shipping convention. A first time exhibitor on this particular convention, ABATO can look back positively on a well organised fair, where we’ve spoken with a lot of new and existing contacts, both nationally and internationally. Therefore we are looking forward to participating as an exhibitor again at the 2019 Europort edition.
New genset control panel
ABATO has designed a new control panel concerning the emergency power generation for one of the largest intersections of internet in the Netherlands which will be applied in the end of year of 2017. This control panel implies a phased execution in which there are continuously 5 out of 6 generators on standby in case of an emergency power breakdown and it works with 4 power connections.
The image displays the setup used to test the control panel.
Will we see you at the STL Messe Kalkar?
In the special edition of the Binnenvaartkrant (inland shipping newspaper), there is an article about our transparent power generator calculator that we have placed on ours website. This application allows (potential) customers to calculate their own marine engine, power generator and maintenance and receive the corresponding price.
Also, we will be at the Shipping Technics Logistics trade fair on September 26 and 27 in Kalkar. Feel free to visit us at stand 212 where we will be happy to tell you more about ABATO and what we can do for you.

Middle East Electricity Beurs
The Middle East Electricity exhibition is an interesting exhibition, because a lot of companies in the generator industry are present on this exhibition. During this exhibition, the 6M33 and 12M33 were presented and the 16M33 (1785 KWM) and the 180M/55 (until 4350 KWM) were introduced. ABATO Motoren represented itself with three employees in the stand of Weichai and thereby we created the opportunity to give an explanation about the motors and possibilities to interested guests.
Emulsion gensets for Koeweit
For the purpose of the construction of a hospital in Kuwait, ABATO Motoren supplied 250kW gensets for the generation of electricity with water-diesel emulsion as fuel. The sets will be commissioned in the second quarter.
Load sharing at RIVM / BBIO
There is designed and implemented a new system in Bilthoven, where the RIVM and BBIO (Bilthoven Biologicals) are established. Thereby, aggregates of different manufacturers, abilities and ages can divide the total load among each other. A run-up synchronization is used and the communication between the controllers is also done via fiber.
Aggregate on propane
After 26 pistons, 12 coils, 2 ignition systems and many development and test hours it is succeeded to run an aggregate on propane. The aggregate delivers 100 kW and is used for power generation in which the heat is used for manure drying. There are substantial savings on the electricity and gas costs. The emission levels are far below the permitted levels.
New marine engine for the Milka boat
The Milka boat is equipped with a new CCR2 marine. The famous ship is a striking appearance by the huge purple cow which stands on the foredeck.
New engines for the Peter Pan
There are two main engines supplied for the motor ship Peter Pan through a shipyard in Terneuzen. The engines are CCR2 certified and deliver 400 hp at 1800 rpm.
New marine engine for the Tsjerk Hiddes
The new engine will be installed in the first half year of 2016. The compact four-cylinder engine produces 120 hp at 1800 rpm. The engine is economical and easy to maintain.
Open door day Mts. Van de Wolfshaar
In November 2015 ABATO was represented in Vragender at the open door day of the pig farm Mts. Van de Wolfshaar. The presented aggregate is particularly suitable for poultry and pig farms because of the easy installation, automatic monthly testing and the facade alarm lamp.
Development on new bio-motors
In partnership with BTG Enschede, TU/E and Ceratec, ABATO Motoren has received a grant from the fund Topsector Energie of the ministry of Economic Affairs for the development of a PyroWKK with Pyrolysis oil with a wood-based fuel. The Weichai-Deutz WP4 generator engine is the power source.
Cooperation with ABB
Because of the quality of products and the good technical support is the cooperation with ABB further expanded in January. A large part of the breakers will be involved in ABB. Beside of that, there will be considered in what ways further cooperation is possible.
For the Velsertunnel located on the A22, which runs under the North Sea canals, an emergency power generator is built. The aggregate will provide power in case of power failure, and thereby ensuring that the tunnel remains ventilated and equipped with lightning during power outages.
De Heus Voeders
For Heus Voeders, winner of the family-business award 2015, is an emergency generator fabricated. The genset is built into a 40 FT container. The aggregate is equipped with an Eaton 3200 A circuit-breaker and a new Socomec motorized switch. In case of power cut, the unit automatically take over the feed plant which is located in Ethiopia.
A new emergency aggregate will be placed at the police headquarter. The project is prepared in detail because the fuel supply, the distributor and the aggregate are located in a small space and because it need to be exchanged in the shortest time as possible. This requires good consultation and coordination between the various parties.
For the latest model, the Discovery 45 OC, a 150 hp / 1500 rpm motor will be placed. The ship is very quiet because of the low rpm. The sound namely increases rapidly when rpm is higher. A trolling valve ensures that there can also be sailed at a footpace. Click on the picture below for more information.
At the distribution center of Coolblue, Best Online Shop 2015, are done powermeasurements and a aggregate is available on location to be quickly connected and turned on. In case of emergency, the aggregate can take over approximately 75% of the maximum load, which is sufficient to absorb the most important consequences of power failures.
For the Amsterdam RAI a new 1850 kVA generator is installed in the summer of 2015. This aggregate will replace the current 7 dieselaggregates. The aggregate will gradually magnetize 33 transformers of 1000 kVA each with a special regulation and will also operates the 10 kV power switch.
For Feadship Emmeline 2, there are delivered two new engines. The engines are because of the combination of high power at low speed and low consumption ideal engines for this ship. The simple design also makes them easy to maintain. You can find the datasheet of the WP4 120 hp at 1800 rpm engines here: WP4_datasheet.
For the refit van of the Feadship Olympia an aggregate is delivered which can generate simultaneous 30 kW electricity + 32 kW switchable hydralic power for the thruster. You can click here for a short movie: film combi powerpack film2. Olympia is the sister ship of the Sultana and will be refitted just like the Sultana in cooperation with Hoek Naval Engineering.
For IJsseldelta of dredgingcompany Van der Kamp is built an emergency genset in an specially designed stainless steel casing by ABATO. The set is put on deck behind the wheelhouse. There will be built in an electric ventilation system which is provided with an alarm, because an air-cooled motor will be applied. See also: Omkast assembly for a 3D view.
For the Belgian public transport company De Lijn a new aggregate is delivered whereby an existing aggregate was taken back. The aggregate starts automatically so that the staff at the headquarters in Mechelen also can continue their work and stay connected to the network and the employees in case of power cuts.
