Compact yet easy to service


Engines and gensets that occupy less space in the engine room but still provide good service accessibility have always been a hallmark of Volvo Penta. Our range is designed for fast and trouble-free service operations and most engines support the use of computerized diagnostics tools.

Reliable operation is absolutely vital for both gensets and emergency sets. All stops – scheduled and unexpected – must be reduced to a minimum. To facilitate service, Volvo Penta engines provide easily accessible service points to reduce maintenance time and cost.
