Fire truck engines and engines for special vehicles
Volvo Penta supplies robust, reliable and well-proven engines fit for almost any heavy-duty needs. No matter if you need the power of an airport fire truck engine or the efficiency of a snow removal machine, Volvo Penta engines will provide your operation with a maximum of dependable uptime, fuel-efficiency and world class service and support.
For on-road applications, continuous uptime is crucial for the operation’s overall productivity and efficiency. But for some applications, a reliable operation can be the difference between life and death. In Volvo Penta engines, the high engine power density will supply ample performance – and you can always trust them to keep running, even while performing heavy-duty tasks in high pressure environments.
In order to safeguard the vital continuous uptime of your vehicles, our industrial engines are constructed to be able to operate for up to 1,000 hours between service intervals. Using the corresponding service protocol and performing approved Volvo Penta Oil Analysis will further increase the engines’ reliable operation, ensuring maximised performance and uptime.
No matter the engine model or size, all our industrial engines are part of the same engine family, built using the same engine platform. This engine commonality translates into a number of benefits such as easier maintenance, operator and maintenance crew familiarity with engine interfaces and range architecture as well as one single source for spare parts. All put together, it provides a simpler and more efficient experience.
