Cenac Repowers Pushboats With Lugger

On the inland waterways Alaska Diesel Electric—a fixture among the fishing fleets of the Pacific Northwest— has found a strong market in the repower, and newbuild, of pushboats, having been selected for the supply of a number of main propulsion and generator sets in the past year.

When it came time for Cenac Towing Co. of Houma, La. to repower older pushboats and build new ones, the choice was made to go with Lugger propulsion engines and Northern Lights generator sets. Two of the early repowers included the Dustin Cenac and the Christine Cenac, and more recently the Jackie Cenac. Cenac's first Lugger was a 460 continuous hp L6140A for the 40-foot (12 m) Dustin Cenac. The Jackie Cenac (as originally reported inMR/EN January, 1993) is powered by three 640-hp Lugger L6170As. The Jackie was totally rebuilt, lengthened six feet and widened six feet, and she received two 36-kW Northern Lights generator sets. When the Jean Pierre Cenac goes into service this year, it will mark the sixth Cenac vessel with Lugger power. The Jean Pierre is the largest Cenac/Lugger project to date, and the 100-foot (30.5 m) vessel will sport three Lugger L12V140As, rated at 950-hp apiece (continuous). Cenac has also been making use of several Northern Lights generator sets models, including many commercial C-series models and a 150-kW industrial model.
