With customers experiencing reduced pump off times with Laborde Products’ Barge Power Units and after success with previous versions of its C1-D1 Power Unit, Laborde introduces a new and improved version. The new C1-D1 Power Unit, while retaining the marine propulsion, is a much more compact, all-mechanical Mitsubishi S6B3 engine that delivers the time reducing 429 bhp. Numerous new features accompany the new offering. Similar to existing units, interchangeable components provide for either left or right handed installation. The stainless steel enclosure keeps the unit in-service longer with less maintenance.
