As a result of its extended product program, Volvo Penta has been chosen as the complete engine supplier for a new series of tugs in the Ukraine.

These boats will be stationed in Yuzhny, which is situated in the Odessa region in southern Ukraine and is one of the most important ports on the Black Sea.
