“The engineer in me highly appreciates working with engines and boats. The sailor in me feels that it is great to have the opportunity to work with boating – connecting with places and people and the passion that I enjoy in my spare time.”
Meet Alexandra Rånge, a marine leisure product planner at Volvo Penta. She manages Volvo Penta’s compact engine range, including the D2-75, the tough engine ready for the Volvo Ocean Race. In her daily work, she has the responsibility to make sure Volvo Penta has a market leading compact engine range, getting involved in the complete lifecycle of the products. All this becomes more interesting during the Volvo Ocean Race, after all Alexandra is a "boat person".
“Standing on the dock watching the Volvo Ocean Race boats approaching is a great moment, which has become even stronger since I have been involved with the D2-75 engine.”
