New IPS from Volvo Penta

Volvo Penta has unveiled its new Inboard Performance System (IPS) Professional Platform for superyachts and commercial marine vessels.

The Volvo Penta IPS Professional Platform builds on the company’s IPS and Electronic Vessel Control (EVC) technology with enhancements for larger vessels.

The flexible platform enables a vessel to have up to eight power sources, and includes matched software, services and support, all integrated via the company’s proprietary EVC technology.

Features of the new platform include an intelligent dual power drive system installed as a twin, triple or quad which enables each vessel to have four to eight power sources.

The solution is prepared for a mix of power sources – from combustion engines running on renewable fuels to fully electric or hybrid solutions.

Intelligent technology features of the platform also include Volvo Penta Assisted Docking, Dynamic Positioning and a Glass Cockpit helm display on some models.

“Our aim has long been the relentless pursuit of innovation,” said Johan Inden, president of Volvo Penta Marine. “We are absolutely focused on delivering sustainable solutions that create an exceptional experience for our customers.

“Building on the success of the legendary Volvo Penta IPS system, this new Professional Platform will also provide new options for energy efficiency and aid in efforts to achieve decarbonisation at sea in marine industries.

“We see this as a major step towards decarbonisation in superyachts and commercial vessels between 25-55 meters.”

A new smart Eco Mode feature will automatically start/stop engines based on the power needed for a given situation.

Approximately 50% of the time, half of the power sources will be on standby. The new Professional Platform will be commercially available in 2025.
