Increased market shares

Volvo Penta continued to increase its market shares among global manufacturers of diesel-powered generator sets – which is Volvo Penta’s largest industrial engine segment by far.

Several new projects for the newly launched IPS drive units connected to 11 and 13-liter engines have been secured, which will strengthen Volvo Penta’s market shares in the large yacht segment.

The volume in the order book at March 31, 2011 was 122% higher year-on-year.
