UK partnership formed around diesel storage tank maintenance
Fuel Performance Solutions Inc. has entered into a business partnership with U.K.-based IPU Group and Unipart Group to market, sell, distribute and provide aftermarket support for PerfoClean, a new FPS product specifically designed to provide superior cleaning and protection properties for diesel fuel storage tanks.
“Our initial focus with FPS has been in the stationary generation industry,” said Andrew Whitehouse, IPU division director. “Going forward, we will continue in the stationary power generation market but also see the development of a commercial opportunity for PerfoClean with the diesel fuel storage tanks for road transport, rail and marine operators.”
“The ever changing fuel market, including the introduction of biodiesel fuel blends, has exacerbated the prevalent problems associated with diesel fuel storage—fuel stability, microbial contamination, sludge, water and overall fuel cleanliness,” said Axel Farhi, IFT’s director of global business development. “PerfoClean addresses and solves all of these problems.”
“The FPS-IPU-Unipart relationship provides end users the ability to operate and maintain their entire fuel system at optimal efficiency,” said Jonathan Burst, FPS’s CEO. “A clean fuel system, coupled with use of our multifunctional fuel additive formulation, DiesoLiFT, allows equipment to operate at a higher level of performance. End users will realize fuel efficiency improvement and a reduction in maintenance expenses.”
Burst added, “The partnership selling and providing aftermarket support will further enhance our ability to build our clientele and increase revenues.”
Fuel Performance Solutions, formerly International Fuel Technology Inc., is focused on providing its technology to large, industrial consumers of diesel fuel and biodiesel blends in the rail, stationary power generation and road transport industries.
