New business opportunities for the IPS system

Volvo Penta’s market-leading position in the inboard segment for powerboats was strengthened by the IPS system now being installed in non-planing boat types. Delivery agreements for these types of boats were secured during the first quarter.

In connection with the Intermat Exhibition in Paris in April, Volvo Penta introduced a complete product program of industrial engines to comply with emission legislations that will come into effect in 2014. Delivery agreements have been secured during the quarter with leading industrial-engine customers in special vehicles and mining segments, which will strengthen Volvo Penta’s market positions in terms of industrial engines for mobile applications.
