Oil major Royal Dutch Shell will strengthen an existing partnership with Finland’s Wärtsilä’s by becoming a test oil partner for Wärtsilä engines during factory testing
Wärtsilä will use Shell engine oils at its engine manufacturing facilities. The company said Shell was selected because of the complete range of available lubricant oils for stationary engines running on gas, heavy fuel oil, gasoil or liquid biofuel.
Wärtsilä Marine Power vice-president power supply, Stefa Nysjö said “Wärtsilä and Shell have a long-standing relationship, which involves collaborating in technology and product development. Lubricants play a key role in the factory acceptance tests of engines, so we are delighted to extend our co-operation to include this area of our operations.”
“We are proud to extend our partnership with a technology leader such as Wärtsilä. Recognising that the engines are meticulously engineered and knowing the high quality of the production process, Shell’s lubricants will help ensure the equipment is well protected and able to perform optimally,” said Shell vice-president, global key accounts and new business development Steve Reindl.
Shell is a leading supplier of engine oils to Wärtsilä globally. In addition to those used during the engine test procedures, Shell supplies hydraulic and gear oils as part of the factory production process. Shell’s Mysella, Argina and Gadinia range of engine oils have been developed to provide top-class engine cleanliness, enhanced wear protection, long oil life, and high system efficiency.
