Shell Marine on Friday (8 November) signed a framework agreement with China’s CCCC Dredging (Group) Co. Ltd covering the fleet-wide supply of marine lubricants and technical services.
In addition to the supply of Shell Marine’s range of lubricating oils, CCCC Dredging’s full access to the company’s technical services is a key component of the agreement.
“We expect that this strategic agreement will strengthen our relationship with Shell Marine and pave the way for further collaboration in other areas,” said CCCC Dredging’s Vice President, Liu Shudong.
“Shell Marine’s comprehensive product range and extensive network ensure that it is well-placed to meet our complex requirements, both in terms of product and supply. We also see the technical services aspect of the agreement as a key element in supporting our drive to raise fleet efficiency and optimise the performance of our assets.”
Effective lubricants supply and service, according to Shell Marine experts, is essential because the correct choice and management of marine lubricants optimises performance and minimises component wear, thereby extending time between overhauls.
“We are delighted to have formalised this strategic agreement with CCCC Dredging,” commented Joris van Brussel, General Manager of Shell Marine.
“We believe that our customer-oriented services and global supply network will provide a comprehensive all-in-one basis for marine lubricant optimisation across the CCCC Dredging fleet. Our competitively priced products, wide port coverage and advanced distribution systems enable a short response time around the clock.”
Shell Marine’s products are now available in more than 700 ports in 61 countries.
