With the launch of Volvo Penta IPS900, the unique IPS, Inboard Performance System is now available for boats in the Coast Guard & Patrol, Supply Vessels, and Offshore Energy and Passenger Transport segments.
Lower Total Cost of Ownership
The new launch will add another couple of good news which means easier maintenance, longer lifecycle and higher increased uptime. Combined with unbeatable fuel consumption, this provides a lower total cost of ownership. Examples of improvements include new gear material, reinforced housings and a completely new design. The new design provides extended oil change intervals; longer intervals for propeller seal replacement and increased reliability.
The IPS900 package uses a Volvo Penta D13 diesel engine with a power output of 700 hp. It is an ideal solution for boats with Rating 3 (medium-duty use, approx. 2,000 service hours/year).
