New HF engine from Sky Power


The manufacturer has introduced a new Heavy Fuel (HF) engine

This marks the beginning of the subsequent development of HF engines based on a completely new HF technology.

It runs on a kerosene-oil mix of 50:1 using JET A, JET A1 or JP-8 and involves a new approach to HF technology whereby the fuel mixture is heated in a reliable and controlled manner.

A number of the engine components were newly developed, including the new KHU 100 (kerosene heating unit).

Sky Power said that the new HF concept can be applied as an upgrade to all injection engines in the SP-210 series. It is characterised by high system reliability in a wide range of conditions.

“The Systems are very flexible and reliable and therefore reduce the operational cost,” said Karsten Schudt, CEO of Sky Power.
