Setting sail for 2050: Imagining the future of marine lubrication

Thursday, 24/09/2020, 09:26 GMT+7




The maritime industry is undergoing seismic shifts of mounting complexity – a process set in motion by the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) 2020 sulphur cap on marine fuels. The pace of these shifts is only going to accelerate as the next major hurdle of the 2050 Green House Gas emissions regulation approaches.

Regulatory and commercial pressures are driving the need for more efficient, cleaner engines, higher quality fuel and digitization. The knock-on effects to vessel operations will demand greater collaboration and a more sophisticated approach throughout the shipping industry. This is especially true in the area of cylinder lubrication.

Read ExxonMobil’s conclusions on how engine lubrication is key to meeting emissions targets in our Future of Lubrication white paper.

Here’s what you can find inside:

  • Foreword by Steve Walker, ExxonMobil’s Global Marine Equipment Builder Manager
  • The challenges of more severe engine conditions
  • The complexity of a multi-fuel reality
  • The increased need for optimised engine monitoring
  • What overarching solutions are there to these challenges?

By reading this white paper, we hope to give you an insight into how the sustainability goals of tomorrow, start with action today.
