LUKOIL Marine Lubricants launches iCOlube in the UK

(LONDON) — To optimize a vessel’s engine performance and efficiency, LUKOIL Marine Lubricants developed the iCOlube system, which had its U.K. official launch on Sept. 8 in London.

More than 120 industry guests viewed technical presentations at Kensington Palace that were supported by interactive touch-screen simulations of the iCOlube system, giving a real-time demonstration of how the system tailors cylinder oils perfectly to prevailing engine requirements and fuel type.

This intelligent cylinder oil lubrication unit tailors the alkalinity reserve to engine load and fuel. The feed rate always stays at the optimum level while only the fuel sulfur content needs to be entered. This way, it maintains best engine conditions, reduces oil costs, saves fuel and is environmentally friendly.
