From quarries to highways, Volvo Penta’s industrial power solutions are the driving force for construction equipment across the globe. Their durable construction – properties that help withstand wear and tear – and heavy-duty capability are imperative to maximise uptime, while the fuel efficiency will help lower the total cost of ownership.
Volvo Penta’s diesel engines are tailored to provide demanding construction operations with outstanding uptime, much thanks to their robust construction and their continuous power output. All construction engines are based on the same engine platform, which simplifies anything from installation to service and the acquisition of spare parts. The service intervals of up to 1,000 hours will help optimise efficiency and safeguard productivity.
Construction work is dirty work, with plenty of dust and debris that can clog up engine machinery. Vibrations when working with rocks and gravel can also put unwanted strain on coolers or harnesses, impeding the efficiency of the engine. The optional Volvo Penta heavy-duty package is specifically tailored to handle the extra strain and help maintain the running of vital machinery, maximising your operation‘s uptime.
Volvo Penta is more than just an engine supplier, we work with you to provide comprehensive solutions for increased uptime and, ultimately, greater profitability. When choosing a Volvo Penta engine for your construction application, you’ll experience a wide range of value-adding, beneficial factors such as the engine installation commonality and vital aftermarket support – with engineering support on site when needed, even in remote locations.
