Volvo Penta now launches its IPS900 propulsiion system making it suitable for boats in the Coast Guard & Patrol, Supply Vessels, & Offshore Energy & Passenger Transport segments, as well as yachts.

 

Volvo Penta IPS is the modern inboard system, superior to inboard shafts in every vital aspect – handling, onboard comfort and performance. Those benefits have made Volvo Penta IPS the by far most popular pod system for leisure boats.

With the Volvo Penta IPS, the customer gets a complete drivetrain from one single supplier who takes responsibility for everything from helm to prop, which is unique in the industry. Volvo Penta IPS900 is a classifiable and approved comprehensive solution. It is a combination of the unique pod construction and one of the most effective and most proven heavy-duty diesel engines in a system that is specifically designed for marine commercial applications.

The IPS900 package uses a Volvo Penta D13 diesel engine with a power output of 700 hp. It is an ideal solution for boats with Rating 3 (medium-duty use, approx. 2,000 service hours/year). The low power usage means reduced load, lower oil temperature, lower engine temperature and thus reduced stress on components – and by that increased durability and longer life. It also means longer service intervals for the whole package, for the IPS unit as well as the engine itself.

  • Crankshaft power: 515 kW/700 hk
  • Max. torque: 2,650 Nm

  • Displacement: 12.78 l
