Volvo Penta is determined to make transition as simple as possible by offering engines with low fuel consumption, easy and compact installation, high power output and low service requirements. Volvo Penta produces innovative products committed to the Volvo core values of quality, safety, and environmental care.

The engine design features are based on the successful state-ofthe-art concept of the Volvo Advanced Combustion Technology (V-ACT), which results in low exhaust emission levels that meets EPA/CARB Tier 3 and EU Stage 3 and SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) technology to comply with the EU stage 3B and EPA Tier 4i emission regulations which is followed by Stage 4 and Tier 4f. Volvo Penta is ready with both solutions to meet the demands of future exhaust emission legislation. The engines not only meete mission standards but alsodeliver substantial cost savings in both equipment manufacturing and operational use.

This is combined with EMS 2, Volvo Penta's electronic control system with increased processing power that manages common rail or unit injectors and turbo charger, to provide low specific fuel consumption, improvements in air and fuel management, this gives extremely fast response to throttle opening but with very low transient smoke, easily meeting the exhaust emission norms.
