Volvo Penta propellers for Duoprop drives and Volvo Penta IPS take full advantage of the twin, counter-rotating concept. Developing propellers for Duoprop technology differs considerably from conventional drives with single propellers. The front and rear propellers must interact and carry out an equal share of the work, otherwise efficiency drops and transmission wear increases. The propellers are available in easy-to-choose series, with each set designed for a specific speed range.
All this give a unique Volvo Penta combination of curving, the surface of the blades and the cavitation design leading to maximum efficiency and comfort.
