A Class 1, Division 1 Zone 1 area is defined as being within a 3 meters radius of any source of gases that could create an explosive atmosphere, including tank vents, sounding tubes, valves and pumps. Any engine that operates in these conditions must meet these requirements. John Deere is the first diesel engine manufacturer to receive USCG MSC certification for Class 1 Division 1 (Zone 1) group C & D hazardous weather-deck locations, for electronically controlled engines. The John Deere PowerTech 6081HFH70 has 8.1L of displacement and offers up to 242 kW - 325hp at 2100 rpm.
