LUKOIL shares lubricant experience

LUKOIL Marine Lubricants has shared its experience of operating with NAVIGO MCL Extra (40BN) with very low sulphur fuel oil (VLSFO) for 100 days. Using the right cylinder oil is the first step to avoid excessive liner wear on VLSFO. Feed rate optimisation is equally important for good engine condition, in combination with engine inspections...

Improving equipment performance

Gaining insight into a vessel’s fuel consumption often requires looking at data that is generated from advanced equipment such as sensors and flow metres. However, equipment is not always accurate and 100 per cent reliable, which raises questions around the value of the data in decision-making. A panel discussion hosted by VPO Global and led by...
