With renewable power capacity set to expand by 50% between 2019 and 2024 and the continued growth of decentralised power generation across Europe, the demands being placed on stationary gas engines are becoming even more pronounced. These trends have seen equipment manufacturers continually push the boundaries of what is possible when it comes to engine and component efficiency. But what about your oil? As equipment technology becomes more advanced, it also becomes more susceptible. High pressures and temperatures can expose engines to combustion chamber issues, such as knocking, that can cause power unit failure.
As a result, engine oil must be able to handle these higher stress levels and harsh conditions, without impacting overall oil life and operations.
And because 79% of companies surveyed think a lubricant supplier who can share expertise would be an added value, at Shell, we’ve taken this challenge and run with it, pushing our own boundaries to create the next generation of stationary gas engine oil.
