Total launches new green lubricant to the market
Global marine lubricant provider Total Lubmarine has introduced a new addition to its already comprehensive Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant (EAL) range which is well suited for port equipment.
BIO OG PLUS has been specifically formulated for sensitive applications, such as open gears and chains under high load, in challenging environments where water contamination is common.
“We are very happy to bring a new product into our range – and this is something that our customers have been asking for,” said Anne-Sophie Vaucheret, marine technical engineer at Total Lubmarine.
“We pride ourselves on an ability to offer an end-to-end lubrication solution, and with BIO OG PLUS, all of our customer’s needs are covered.”
On top of being an extreme pressure and adhesive grease, BIO OG PLUS’s biodegradable qualities will allow owners, managers and operators of vessels to take a more environmentally considerate approach to lubrication.
It is also a vital resource to those operating in areas requiring the use of EAL Lubricants, such as those working within jurisdiction of the US.
