Alternative Diesel Fuel types now compatible with Fischer Panda generators

Fischer Panda UK has announced that paraffin-based alternative diesel fuels, produced under the Fischer-Tropsch procedure and complying with the European standard EN15940, can be used for the complete diesel generator portfolio currently supplied by Fischer Panda GmbH. This has been confirmed by the Paderborn, Germany-based manufacturer and is valid for Kubota, Mitsubishi, HATZ and Fischer Panda engines. *

Sales and Marketing Director, Chris Fower of Fischer Panda UK Ltd said: “This is an exciting development for both the UK marine and automotive markets as it allows our customers to easily and readily move towards meeting ambitious UK emission targets. This will allow businesses to reduce their carbon footprints without the need for costly modifications or compromised performance with their existing systems. As many of our diesel generator customers, some with large fleets, grow concerned about the costs of converting to more environmentally friendly solutions, this announcement supports those customers with an affordable alternative. It will be a welcome development for many of our customers using our generators on their boats and vehicles.”

The following fuel types are approved:

- HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oils)

- XTL (X-To-liquid)

- BTL (Biomass-to-liquid)

- GTL (Gas-to-liquid)

- CTL (coal-to-liquid)

The use of these fuels complying with EN15940 will not require any additional maintenance or modification.

“We are experiencing a growing demand to run our generators on synthetic diesel fuel. These fuels are especially interesting, not only for their positive environmental impact but also because they reach performance levels comparable to diesel fuels and can be distributed by the existing fuel network”, says Stephan Backes, Managing Director at Fischer Panda GmbH.
