Volvo Penta Constructing New Production Facility

—Literature Offered Volvo Penta of America, the marine division of Volvo North America Corporation, is constructing new facilities in Chesapeake, Va., which will greatly expand production capabilities for the company's I/O (Inboard/ Outboard) and inboard gasoline power plants, including the new, higher performance AQ271 and AQ311 models.

The increase in production space over the existing facility will mean larger component storage, assembly, painting, testing, packing, warehousing and shipping facilities. Additionally, there will be increased space available for industrial and marine diesel engine upfit and modifications requested by OEM customers.

Separate testing facilities and dynamometers are planned for diesel and gasoline engines at the new site, allowing engines to be randomly selected and run in at significant performance levels to check output.

Volvo Penta's superior gasoline engine lineup is constantly being expanded to meet the demands of power boat manufacturers. The company has recently introduced the Low Friction 4-cylinder engine series, and also offers the 16-valve twin overhead cam AQ171, V-8 I/O and inboard propulsion systems.
