Environmental care

Environmental performance

The Volvo Penta engine range comply with the current exhaust emission requirements and many engines already comply with the emission standards which come into effect over the next couple of years.

With large resources for continuous development, Volvo Penta leads the way by sustaining power output while meeting the demands for reduced fuel consumption and emissions.
Optimised for low-sulphur fuel
Facing increasing environmental demands, a growing number of harbours require visiting ships to use low-sulphur fuel. The Volvo Penta engine range is optimised for running on low-sulphur fuel, a fuel that also contributes to longer service intervals and increased engine uptime.
