Cenac Repowers Pushboats With Lugger
Port Of Seattle's Managing
Director Launches Cruise
As the Port of Seattle's new man-aging director for marine operations,
Don Fleming is heightening the Northwest port's cruise ship market- ing efforts. "The Port of Seattle has work un-derway to modify one facility to better accommodate cruise vessels as well as to construct a brand new cruise ship terminal that will open in 1996," said Mr. Fleming. "This represents a significant dedication of capital and facilities to develop a Seattle-Alaska cruise ship market," continued Mr. Fleming. Pier 48 renovations started in 1993 to provide additional berth space and an upgraded passenger ter- minal area. Cruise lines calling Se-attle in the 1994 repositioning season will use the enhanced facility. The Port's Central Waterfront Project in- cludes a $64 million pierside develop-ment which includes a cruise ship terminal along with an international conference center, maritime museum, retail and restaurant space, and short-stay recreational boat moorage. The
Central Waterfront Project also will include hotel, office and residential components nearby."The bottom line is we want more passenger traffic through the Seattle harbor and par-ticularly we want to attract Alaska cruises," concluded Mr. Fleming. 16

A few simple truths from Trimble
We have no 1) intention of getting into the refrigerator business. we did just launch a few new products that are causing a bit of a ruckus.
Alaska Diesel Electric, well established among the fishing fleets in the Pacific Northwest, has found a burgeoning market in the supply of engines and generator sets to the repowering and newbuilding of inland waterway boats. Pic- tured above is the Albert Cenac, a newbuild, and to the right, the Christine Cenac, a recent repower.
On the inland waterways Alaska
Diesel Electric—a fixture among the fishing fleets of the Pacific North- west—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 Tow- ing 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 in- cluded the Dustin Cenac and the
Christine Cenac, and more recently the Jackie Cenac. Cenac's first Lug- ger was a 460 continuous hp L6140A for the 40-foot (12 m) Dustin Cenac.
The Jackie Cenac (as originally re- ported inMR/EN January, 1993) is powered by three 640-hp Lugger
L6170As. The Jackie was totally rebuilt, lengthened six feet and wid- ened 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) ves- sel will sport three Lugger
L12V140As, rated at 950-hp apiece (continuous). Cenac has also been making use of several Northern
Lights generator sets models, in- cluding many commercial C-series models and a 150-kW industrial model.
