Volvo Penta IPS

Picture for category TYPE-Volvo Penta IPS service parts

Volvo Penta IPS is a unique design with forward-facing, twin counter-rotating propellers that sit below the hull for an incredible ‘grip’ of the water. Individually steerable IPS drives are linked to the onboard Joystick Docking function.

IPS drives require specific anodes and gear oil to maintain them. Some installations are fitted an Anti-Corrosion Protection system utilising a specific anode, and some varients use an aluminium bar anode as well as the cast iron anode fitted into the lower drive.

All IPS drives use 75W-90 gear oil and are fitted with an oil filter.

Specification: Gear oil - 14 litres of 75W-90 Gear oil
