Engine oils and lubricants company Gazpromneft-Lubricants has announced it has received a ‘No Objection Letter’ from engine manufacturer Wartsila for its Gazpromneft Ocean TPL 3030/3040 and Gazpromneft Ocean TPL 4040/5040 lube oils.
The Gazpromneft Ocean TPL 4040 oil product worked for more than 4,500 hours on board a vessel during trial tests which lasted about 14 months.
Based on the test results, the products were included in the list of lubricants validated for use in Wartsila and Sulzer engines.
Gazpromneft Ocean TPL series modern engine oils with medium and high base numbers are specially designed for use in trunk piston diesel engines.
In particular, Gazpromneft Ocean TPL 3030 and Gazpromneft Ocean TPL 3040 are recommended for use in engines consuming low-sulphur heavy grades of fuel, including IMO 2020 complying ones.
“Official approvals are objective criteria that confirm the high quality of oils. Wartsila is one of the largest manufacturers of marine equipment: according to 2018 data, the company occupied 47% of the medium-speed engine market,” said Gazpromneft Marine Lubricants Managing Director Roman Miroshnichenko.
“Gazpromneft Ocean oil showed excellent results at each test stage. The obtained data, recognised by Wartsila, allow our customers to make a confident choice in early 2020 in favour of products under the Gazpromneft Ocean brand.”
