On the occasion of the challenge put by IMO with the 2020 sulphur limit cap regulation, LUKOIL Marine Lubricants launched NAVIGO MCL Extra, a 40 BN marine cylinder oil for distillate, ultra-low Sulphur fuel oil (<0.1%S) and low Sulphur heavy fuel oil applications.
Stefan Claussen, Technical and Marketing Director of LUKOIL Marine Lubricants, declared that the company is ready for the big change in fuels ahead of the shipping industry, that the regulation brings upon.
NAVIGO MCL Extra has been granted approval for MAN and Wärtsilä (WinGD) engines, as it complements the company’s product portfolio for low and ultra-low Sulphur applications, which also comprises NAVIGO MCL Ultra with a BN of 20 suitable for distillate and ultra-low Sulphur fuel oil (<0.1%S).
Since NAVIGO MCL Extra also covers low Sulphur HFO applications, it will replace NAVIGO 40 MCL and will from now on be delivered globally instead of NAVIGO 40 MCL.
LUKOIL is a 1991-established Russian company exploring, producing, refining and marketing petroleum products.
