Industrial Engines | Made in India

Volvo Penta to introduce industrial engines produced locally in India.
Volvo Penta will begin production of five and eight litre industrial engines in India, next year. The company has already been supplying engines for industrial and marine applications, to customers in the country for more than two decades. The five and eight litre engines will be made for Indian customers at the VE Powertrain (VEPT) plant in Pithampur, near Indore. A new line will be added at the plant exclusively for the Volvo Penta engines.

The commencement of engine production at VEPT reconfirms the Volvo Group´s commitment towards the ´Make in India´ initiative by investing in local production. The VEPT plant in Pithampur is part of the VE Commercial Vehicles´ JV between the Volvo Group and Eicher Motors. It is one of six manufacturing plants that the Volvo Group has invested in, in India, including several in Bengaluru for the trucks, buses and construction equipment divisions.

Volvo Penta´s range of five and eight litre engines are certified for Indian Bharat (CEV) Stage III emissions standards which are equivalent to EU stage IIIA or Tier-3 and are already in the field, powering a variety of applications including construction, material handling, raw material exploration and agriculture. The new production and assembly lines will enable versatile solutions tailored to the local market needs.

With this move, it is evident that Volvo Penta sees great opportunity in infrastructure development in the country. And, the ability to supply engines quickly is a key capability for the company.
