We’re proud to announce that Nick Boksa, President of Boksa Marine Design was invited to Sweden by Volvo Penta which manufactures engines and drive systems for marine applications.
He’ll be meeting with Volvo Penta representatives, visiting multiple factories across the country and participating in various sea trials. The meetings began on Sunday, June 17 and run through Friday, June 22.
Volvo Penta is seeking to adapt their engines and pod drive systems to a greater reach within commercial applications. They’ve invited designer, architects and builders from around the United States to get a better understanding of the benefits and features of Volvo Penta systems.
Update from June 19:
Nick Boksa participated in sea trials yesterday afternoon with Volvo Penta in Sweden to test IPS 3 pod drives and Volvo stern drives on 3 different boats.
Per Boksa, “Very impressed with handling, speed and efficiency of the pod drives…also had an informative meeting yesterday to review the Volvo line of engines and propulsion systems available for commercial vessels and leisure vessels.”
