The Faroe Islands transport authority reports excellent operational efficiency in challenging weather conditions since repowering its Skopun to Gamlaraett ferry with Volvo Penta gensets. When the Faroe Islands transport authority needed to repower it turned to Volvo Penta to supply new gensets. The ferry had previously run gensets by a different supplier, but in seeking more power and better redundancy the transport authority chose to install five Volvo Penta prime power units. Since repowering, the gensets have been in operation without failure for around 20,000 hours each and have cut fuel usage by 22 %.
