Mitsubishi Engines for Chem Carrier

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

Chem Carriers, the Sunshine, Louisiana-based cargo carrier, once again chose Mitsubishi engines for its new M/V Dorella Banta.

The 70 ft x 28 ft x 10 ft, 131-ton towboat was built by Rodriguez Boat Builders.  The twin engines, supplied by Laborde, are Mitsubishi S12A2 series rated at 850 hp at 1,940 rpm.  The 12-cylinder, 34-liter engines are EPA compliant.  The vessel is equipped with 7:1 reduction gears, allowing the engines to turn 75 inch x 73 inch four-blade stainless steel propellers in a 76 inch Type 19A Kort Nozzel.

Founded in 1994, Chem Carriers operates 27 barges and 6 towboats carrying chemicals such as caustic soda. 

For more than 25 years, Laborde Products has served the Gulf Coast region by distributing Mitsubishi, Yanmar and Hatz diesel engines, as well as FPT/Iveco gensets.  The company packages its own diesel-powered generators, pumps, pressure washers and other custom diesel equipment.
