In the power sector, there are two fundamental approaches that can reduce the total cost of ownership. The first to ensure that every piece of equipment has the most appropriate lubricant solution. The second is to implement effective lubrication management.
Lubrication has a critical impact on overall maintenance costs in this sector. At Shell, our expertise goes beyond producing high quality lubricants; our technical specialists can help you to optimise your lubrication management, and ensure that your workforce is trained in this essential discipline. This will maximise your equipment efficiency and extend component life through the most effective lubrication.
The great changes in the power sector, experienced around the world, at different rates and to service different needs – has in turn created great change in lubricants. Shell’s experts continuously strive to develop and optimise products and lubrication management processes that are genuinely capable of serving the ever-divergent needs of the power sector.
In turbine oils alone, protecting the equipment from downtime or breakdown from the immense stress that the latest turbines are capable of bearing, requires a highly capable lubricant with exceptional resistances to degradation to increase productivity.
