Off-road solutions and engines Industrial Power Generation
Off-road
A common platform

The engines in the Volvo Penta range all share a common platform – a major benefit for, for example, OEMs who use multiple engine sizes in their product applications. The common platform also simplifies the design work when developing new equipment and machines.

Easy installation

Volvo Penta off-road and power generation engines are designed for easy installation – the simpler the fitting, the lower the risk of installation mistakes or future malfunctions. The lightweight and compact engines can be easily used to build machines and equipment, even where space is limited. Installation is further simplified with vital engine parts located in the same places on the engine body. And naturally, we supply installation assistance where and when it’s needed.

Working better – together

By working in close cooperation with our OEMs, we can share knowledge and expertise, helping develop complete packages that maximize performance and functionality in each application. By listening carefully to and working in close cooperation with both OEMs and end users, we develop the very best suitable solutions for the task at hand.
