Volvo Penta

Marine engines and complete marine propulsion systems

Volvo is one of the most popular car brands in Europe. At the same time, however, the Swedish concern is also known for its engines and propulsion systems, thanks to a sequence of innovations introduced by the subsidiary Volvo Penta.

The long-standing tradition in the production of onboard engines, combined with the innovative approach of Volvo Penta make the manufacturer one of the favorites of most boat manufacturers. There are over 140 brands that rely on this type of propulsion systems, including Fairline Boats, Sunseeker, Riviera, Four Winns, Sea Ray, Hanse and Cranchi.

Industrial engines

Durable Volvo Penta engines are also widely used to power industrial equipment. Manufacturers of generators, agricultural machinery and construction equipment also rely on this technology. The durability of the Volvo Penta engines is also used in the mining industry.


Since 1868

The tradition of Volvo Penta dates back to 1868, when the first Foundry and Mechanical Workshop of engineer Johann Grönwal opened in Schövde. It originally produced stoves and brewery equipment. Subsequently, the workshop began to produce agricultural equipment, and in the early 1900s – steam engines and water turbines.

The first Penta engine was introduced in 1907. As the five members of the commission tasked with coming up with a name of the system could not agree on what to call it, the simple “Penta” was agreed upon. And so, initially found as a foundry workshop, the company focused on the production of engines, mainly for marine applications.

In 1925, Penta was commissioned to create an engine for the first Volvo car. The designed model for a four-cylinder engine became the ground for a fruitful cooperation. As a result, in 1935 Penta became a branch of Volvo.
