• Fuel efficient
• Low emission levels
• High serviceability
• Excellent power-to-weight ratio
• Platform commonality
• Easy installation
• Fully classifiable
Besides high reliability, a Volvo Penta engine also features fuel efficiency, low emission levels, high serviceability and flexible configuration. In terms of design and manufacturing, they also provide an excellent power-to-weight ratio, platform commonality and easy installation.
No matter what your requirements are or what the application is, you will find the perfect auxiliary engine for use in applications such as gensets, pumps, cranes, hydraulic power packs, bow thrusters, air compressors, high-pressure water systems, fire-fighting equipment, nitrogen pumps or dry bulk handling.
With Volvo Penta engines, you have access to the full power output the second you start up the machine. Regardless of load, they respond immediately to deliver the power needed. The basic design features robust engine blocks manufactured from high-strength castings with all components engineered to withstand the toughest conditions. Low fuel consumption is high priority, as are low maintenance costs, exhaust and noise emissions, and high serviceability.
Thanks to the Volvo Penta common engine platform – tested and well proven in a wide range of Volvo Group and marine applications world-wide – the auxiliary engine range benefits from shared parts and service points, cutting down lead times and shortening the time needed for training and installation. They are compact in design with easily accessible service points, making installation, service and maintenance easy.
Volvo Penta auxiliary engines are also used frequently in diesel-electric operations. Compact and easy to install, in multi-engine combinations they can be used step-by-step to optimise engine load in upstream and downstream operations, keeping fuel consumption and engine running hours – and the total cost of ownership – at the lowest possible levels.
With Volvo Penta Marine Gensets, you have access to the full power output the second you start up the engines. Thanks to the high low-end torque, they immediately respond to any given load and deliver the power needed.
The MCC electronic platform is the powerful interface for managing, for example, multiple installations and efficient load sharing. An open CAN Interface gives you a delivered engine without a control system. Different options with or without shutdown senders and switches are available.
The Volvo Penta marine gensets are available with a wide range of cooling options – Heat Exchanger, Keel, Radiator or Central Cooling.
