Chevron Marine Lubricants launches 2020-ready lubricant range
Chevron Marine Lubricants has developed a brand-new range of cylinder lubricants compatible with virtually all available global sulphur cap 2020 compliance options.
As the global marine industry prepares for the arrival of the global sulphur cap in January 2020, the operation of ships in a multi-fuel future is a fast approaching reality. Lubricants are essential to the smooth operation and service life of propulsion machinery, but their optimal use is highly dependent on fuel sulphur content. A diversified marine fuel mix demands tailoring lubricant selection to fuel sulphur content to ensure compatibility with fuels bunkered across a fleet.
The Taro® Ultra range of lubricants deliver the same high performance and protection expected from Chevron’s Taro® engine lubricants, with the added benefit of being compatible with almost all engines, marine bunker fuels and abatement technologies. The full range of Taro® Ultra products cover the needs of the majority of vessel owners, from Taro Ultra 25 which is compatible with low sulphur fuel, distillates and many alternative fuels, to Taro Ultra 140 for applications using high sulphur bunker fuels.
Specifically developed by Chevron Marine Lubricants to help shipowners and operators maintain efficient operations, Taro® Ultra products support the industry’s transition to fuel sulphur constricted operations from 2020. The new range of Taro® Ultra lubricants will be phased in throughout 2019.
“A key driver for launching Taro® Ultra is to ensure the product availability and the flexibility to meet the demands of the changing sulphur global landscape, recognising the need for more diverse fuel options we expect to be available both now and post-2020. This enables customers to make clear and concise choices that suit their unique operating requirements, ensuring the right products are available in the right places,” said Chevron Marine Lubricants General Manager Chia Yoo Soon.
“We are performing a rigorous and extensive programme of field testing with leading OEMs, demonstrating the strong performance of our lubricant offering. In addition to our trusted supply network, we are delivering the reassurance and supply security our customers need during the transition,” says Luc Verbeeke, Senior Product Development Engineer at Chevron Marine Lubricants.
