Scana Volda, formerly Volda Mekaniske Verksted, was established in 1913 in Volda, Norway, and was taken over by the Scana group in 1998. Volda Mek. started as an engine factory and later developed into including shipbuilding and production of propellers and gears. At the end of the 1980s, the last hull was delivered – and the shipyard was removed in 1997.
Since 1966, gears and propulsion systems have been the most important products. Scana Volda has been a Consortial Partner to MaK (Caterpillar) since 1996. From 2009 Scana Volda has held a leading role in the product group Scana Propulsion, which also consists of Scana Mar-El, Scana Zamech in Elblag, Poland, and Scana Singapore.
