Short sea transport

Short sea and river transport

When operating in continuous service, reliability and low fuel consumption are essential. Volvo Penta’s extensive experience supports the operator in making the best propulsion choice. Emission demands are becoming ever more stringent: not only from governments, but also from clients and operators.

In cooperation with the Volvo Group, Volvo Penta offers a complete product range to meet the most stringent emission demands – while still delivering optimized performance, low fuel consumption and excellent operational economy
