Volvo Penta delivers engines to Indonesian Governor’s boat in East Flores

Volvo Penta is steadily increasing its Asian sales of engines and drive systems for commercial marine use. A prestigious order is for the engines to the new Governor’s boat in East Flores in Indonesia that were just delivered.
East Flores in Indonesia comprise hundreds of islands, most without any land connections. Consequently, the Governor’s official boat is an important transportation for the authorities. The new boat was constructed by the Binamina Karya Perkasa shipyard in Jakarta, Indonesia. It is 28.5 meters in length and is a highly representative flying-bridge boat built in reinforced fiberglass. Twin Volvo TAMD165P 16-liter marine diesels at 770 hp each provide a top speed of 22 knots and a cruising speed of 19 knots.

“This is a strategically important order for us. The authorities order many boats and are also involved in financing the local fishing industry. It is positive that we in this way can demonstrate our know-how and the quality of our products directly for the local leadership,” says Mark Khoo, Vice President, Volvo Penta Asia.
