Volvo Penta D8-IPS700 (Rating 4) is a perfectly matched package, powered by the in-line 6-cylinder D8, a 7.7-liter, common-rail diesel with a twin-entry turbo, and supercharger for incredible, low rpm response. Working together with a perfectly matched IPS15 pod, twin counter-rotating propellers and the Electronic Vessel Control system, this package offers excellent manoeuvrability, long action range and low emissions.
Steerable pods provide superior slow-speed manoeuvrability and excellent high-speed handling. Docking is easy and safe, even in confined spaces. The outstanding manoeuvrability also leads to efficient driver response and high safety.
Immediate response and high performance is matched by lower amounts of noise and vibrations further reduced by the balance shaft and the optimized engine suspension
The engine and pod system is designed for low noise and pleasant on board environment. A combined rubber suspension and seal absorb propulsion forces and vibrations. And all exhaust fumes are emitted through the pods and into the prop wash for improved comfort
ELECTRONIC VESSEL CONTROL
Volvo Penta Electronic Vessel Control fully integrates the engines, electronics and the unique set of optional features, such as Joystick Docking, Dynamic Positioning System, Glass Cockpit and more. e-Key is standard. The system also includes built-in redundancy to ensure there is always a backup system at hand.
COMPACT, ROBUST AND LIGHTWEIGHT PACKAGE
The engine is lightweight and extremely compact for its large swept volume and high output. The rigid cast-iron cylinder block and cylinder head, and exactly controlled fuel injection give excellent on board comfort. The engine and pod forms a compact, robust and highly efficient package that is easy to install. This gives excellent reliability and long-term durability
LOW FUEL CONSUMPTION
The high-tech fuel injection system helps make the engine highly fuel efficient. The control unit monitors several parameters which reduces the overall fuel consumption.
