Sky Power International enters partnership with Aspen-USA
Customers of Sky Power International have been able to purchase the two-stroke mixture of the Swedish fuel supplier Aspen via the online store of the German engine manufacturer for years. Now, for the U.S. market, Sky Power International and Aspen USA have decided to work even more closely together.
“Aspen’s two-stroke blends are of course essential for our two-stroke engines. We use Aspen’s products ourselves on our test stand and can therefore only recommend these two-stroke mixtures based on our experience,” explains Karsten Schudt, managing owner of Sky Power International. Aspen offers the pre-mixed fuel Aspen 2 for two-stroke engines, that is suitable for engines requiring a mixing ratio of 50:1 or 40:1. In the USA, Schudt will work more closely with Aspen to also be able to offer the Swedish high-performance fuel to his customers. Due to Sky Power International’s good network in the US UAV market, there are good synergy effects for both partners.
Aspen has been supplying high-performance fuels for a wide range of applications around the world for more than 30 years. These are alkylate fuels that are particularly pure and therefore burn very cleanly. This is ideal for small engines with a high-power bandwidth. Unlike other gasolines, Aspen removes the harmful components found in other fuels while delivering the high-octane rating required for small engines. This allows higher engine performance to be achieved.
All Aspen fuels are free of ethanol, which contributes to corrosion, and are very stable in storage. Unopened, Aspen 2 two-stroke mixture lasts more than 5 years. In the tank, the fuel is still serviceable after several years, so UAVs can be safely stored without having to empty the tanks.
