Volvo Penta unveils new IPS engine

ADVERTISEMENT

Volvo Penta has launched a new medium-use IPS900 engine, which uses a Volvo Penta D13 diesel engine with a power output of 700 hp. It is designed for medium-duty use, about 2,000 service hours per year. The low power usage means reduced load, lower oil temperature, lower engine temperature and thus reduced stress on components, and by that longer service intervals.
