30% less fuel, 40% longer range
When it comes to fuel economy, the benefits of Volvo Penta IPS are obvious – an impressive 30% possible reduction in fuel consumption at service speed compared to inboard shafts. That translates into over 40% longer operating range and of course a huge drop in exhaust emissions.
It may seem like an impossible combination, but while decreasing fuel consumption, performance is also greatly improved. In a matchup against inboard shafts of the same power, the differences are obvious. The boat equipped with Volvo Penta IPS accelerates much faster and has a higher top speed.
Fast and easy installation
Volvo Penta IPS is designed for easy installation and integration. Each IPS installation is a complete and perfectly matched propulsion package with all functions integrated, which dramatically shortens the installation time, reducing lead times.
