Lifecycle cost

Volvo Penta engines are designed and developed for long term performance. Volvo is the world leader in diesel technology and one of the world’s largest producers of heavy-duty diesel engines.

When investing in a new power system, it is important to focus on the total lifecycle cost, rather than the initial purchasing price. The lifecycle cost will depend mainly on the cost of fuel and cost for downtime. Volvo Penta calculations show that in many cases, the cost of fuel is 9/10 of the total lifecycle cost.
Thanks to the advanced Volvo technology, Volvo Penta diesel engines have low fuel consumption. They are also designed for long service intervals and the high reliability reduce the risk of costly unplanned downtime.
