Laborde Products launched its 40-kW diesel generator and its subsequent lineup this quarter. The LPI-Y-40kW Yanmar diesel-powered generator is a Tier 3, 3.3 liter 4TNV98T-ZGGM. The 4TNV98T is a 4-cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine with a rated speed of 1,800 rpm. At max the generator's output is 45 kW.

The phase 3 diesel generator maintains 150 amps at 208v. Laborde’s 40 kW can either be radiator or keel cooled, depending on the specifications, and is designed with a structural steel skid and Dynagen control panel. Burning a total of 3.5 GPH, the LPI-Y-40kW is cost-effective when compared to its competitors, Laborde officials said.

“We are incredibly excited to announce our new line of generators, starting with the 40kW marine auxiliary Yanmar 4TNV98,” Trace Laborde, vice president of sales of Laborde Products, said in a statement announcing the new generator.  “Whether keeping the lights on or running the winches, this 40 kW is hard to pass up when compared to the cost of its competitors.”
