Fuel – The critical expense

Fuel – The critical expense

By constantly enhancing our engines’ fuel efficiency, we give Volvo Penta engine operators a competitive edge. Over a five-year period, fuel costs represent as much as 90–95% of your total cost for operating a prime power installation. When you look at the fuel efficiency of Volvo Penta engines and add their recognized high quality and efficiency, you have all the basics for a sustainable operation.

Start/stop technology

START/STOP TECHNOLOGY SAVES ON FUEL

Volvo Penta’s optional, easy-to-install Start/Stop technology reduces fuel consumption, noise and exhaust emissions by enabling the engine to start or stop when the correct conditions are fulfilled. When the application needs to resume its operation, the engine starts immediately. Start/Stop is designed to maintain maximum engine life and can reduce fuel consumption by up to 15%, depending on idling time and engine operating conditions.

Designed for Productivity

The success of our customers’ business is at the center of everything we do – from design and engineering, through installation to service, support and parts distribution. Our engines are designed to fit any need or requirement, limiting the need for costly adjustments, and we pride ourselves on being able to supply tailor-made solutions that benefit our partners’ business operations.

Common plattform

THE BENEFITS OF A COMMON PLATFORM

All Volvo Penta engines share a common platform. Operations requiring the use of several engines of different sizes can considerably lower their costs by using only Volvo Penta engines. The shared service and accessory parts simplifies parts availability and results in shorter lead times, promoting overall productivity and – in the long run – an enhanced return on investment.

Reduce ventilation costs

REDUCE VENTILATION COSTS

Improving conditions underground requires advanced engine technology and optimized ventilation rates. But proper ventilation of an underground mine is energy-consuming — and expensive. At the industry’s forefront for low emissions, Volvo Penta engines can help operators decrease ventilation rates and improve overall air quality in the mine — leading to cleaner air and lowered costs.
