Spanish term or phrase: Arranc. BBA
This is from a shipping equipment checklist. It recurs often as in Arranc. BBA Lodos, Arranc. BBA Carga, etc.

Does anyone know what BBA stands for?

And is it 'Start' as in a command, or 'Starter'?

Start pump

Thinking over my comment above it actually could be an equipment checklist, they have to check the pumps to see they are functioning properly.
And the only thing I can think of for "BBA" is an acronym for "Bomba".

I found it appears here:

Though I haven't found any other page for the moment, therefore although it may seem to me the most logical it may not be accurate at all, therefore my low level of confidence.
Hope it helps in some way!

Must add, it would be in any case, continuing the phrase of the original: "start mud pump, start loading pump, etc"
