Volvo Penta Emission Technology

Engineered for the Future

Volvo Penta engine technology is based on more than 100 years of engineering experience and innovation of the entire Volvo Group. At Volvo Penta, we take pride in offering our customers the optimized solution for each emission legislation step. Developing new, pioneering products and improving existing products is a source of pride for the entire Volvo brand. As a supplier of industrial engines, we have a responsibility to reduce our products’ environmental footprint and meet emission legislation – working towards a better tomorrow.

Meeting emission standards and legislation

Volvo Penta products are designed to meet international emission legislations. Special attention is given to energy efficiency, manufacturing, emissions and noise, material efficiency, technology for the future and environmental management. We adapt to take the demands of regional markets into account in every stage of the process – both during the production and during the product’s complete lifetime – supplying engines that meet a wide range of emission requirements.

Stage V

The latest step when it comes to emission legislation is Stage V. To find the necessary solutions, Volvo Penta has performed in-depth evaluations of customer needs and the legislation demands at hand. This has made it possible for us to offer our customers optimized technology that thoroughly fulfills their operational needs, meeting the legislation demands – making sure business is running at full capacity.

Stage IV/Tier 4 Final

Stage IV and Tier 4 Final legislation increases the demands on industrial engines. Here, Volvo Penta has chosen to work with SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) technology paired with a light EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) system. Apart from lowered emissions, this solution means less maintenance and upkeep for customers, as well as better productivity and uptime and lower maintenance costs.

Stage II & III/Tier 2 & 3

In order to keep emissions down and meet the demands of Stage II & III/Tier 2 & 3, Volvo Penta has chosen to work with robust engine construction with low complexity. The robust engine design together with the injection system contributes to efficient combustion as well as lowered fuel consumption. The low complexity engine leads to the benefit of easier installation and maximized uptime.

Towards sustainability

Environmental care is one of Volvo Penta’s core values and we work actively to develop resource efficient products with low environmental impact. However, sustainability means more than just emission levels. It is just as much about fuel economy, ease of installations and the total cost of ownership – all the parts that lower the environmental impact of your chosen power solution. Field testing to ensure durability, reliability and suitability for the application in the environment where they are to be used, is conducted and the latest advances in technology are employed to ensure that the engines meet emission legislation.
