Swedish Coast Guard Selects Volvo Penta

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

The Swedish Coast Guard is to install Volvo Penta’s Inboard Performance System (IPS) in a new type of vessel for sea rescue and border control. Using the IPS system, the Coast Guard is targeting to reduce the fuel consumption of the new vessels by about 30%. The drives were chose for the five new KBV 312 vessels that will be used for surveillance, border control, fishing control, sea rescue and safety at sea activities. The order to Volvo Penta consists of a total of 15 complete IPS systems. Each vessel will be operated by three Volvo Penta D13 engines, with IPS drive system (3xIPS1050), which will generate propulsion corresponding to a shaft installation of 3,150 horsepower per vessel.  The vessels, which will be built at Baltic Workboats in Estonia, will be 26.5 m long and 6.2 m wide and have a top speed of more than 30 knots. The KBV 312 is semi-planing and built of aluminum and will be equipped with state-of-the-art technology, with respect to navigation and propulsion.
