Volvo Penta rolls out its first ‘Made in India’ engines from Pithampur plant

Volvo Penta, global manufacturer of engines and complete power systems for boats, vessels and industrial applications, announced rolling out of its first engines at a new dedicated production line at the VE Powertrain (VEPT) plant in Pithampur, Madhya Pradesh.

Volvo Penta will be producing its 5- and 8-litre engines at this facility. The company is ready to serve Indian customers with off-road industrial engines that are ‘Made in India’, it said.

“This is a momentous time for us,” says Jonas Nilsson, head of Volvo Penta in India. “Although we have supplied engines and products to India for two decades, to have them actually produced here for the first time and delivered to customers, is a progressive step. We are ready for whatever the market needs – we are producing premium quality engines made in India, for Indian customers.”

One of the first customers to take delivery of the new engines is TIL, a Kolkata-based manufacturer of mobile cranes. Pinaki Niyogy, Vice President, Manufacturing and Engineering for TIL said, “Volvo Penta engines, with their compact design, develop higher torque at lower RPM, which enhances our machine’s fuel efficiency. The engines are ready for future emissions stage compliance. The after-sales is also excellent – ensuring fast availability of spare parts and preventive maintenance programs that go a long way in minimising machine downtime.”

Concrete pump manufacturer, Putzmeister also took delivery of the new engines during the event. Present at the occasion, Parminder Singh Gabri, Director – Sales, Putzmeister Concrete Machines Pvt Ltd said, “Volvo Penta engines are known for high fuel efficiency and reliability, and with their new range of engines we look forward to many more years of this association.”
