Volvo Penta conducts its operations in two overall business segments: Marine and Industrial. For a broader general public, Volvo Penta is mostly known for its marine engines and world-leading innovations, such as the Aquamatic drive and the counter-rotating propellers, Duoprop.
However, the most rapidly growing operation for Volvo Penta in the past decade has been sales of industrial engines, which currently represent about 40% of Volvo Penta’s total sales value.
The basis for the industrial engine business is the strength in the Volvo Group’s total product and service offering. Assisted by these, Volvo Penta is able to offer high-technological products, as well as global support for such industrial applications as diesel-operated gensets, cranes and container handlers.
