Shell Marine secures contract for Cosco Shipping Specialized Carriers
Shell Marine has extended its relationship with China COSCO Shipping Company Limited (COSCO SHIPPING) businesses, after winning a contract to supply lubricants for five 62,000 dwt multi-purpose pulp carriers due delivery to COSCO SHIPPING Specialized Carriers Co Ltd in 2019 and 2020, the company said in its release.
The lubricants contract, won in a competitive negotiation process, calls for delivery of the two-stroke engine cylinder oils Shell Alexia 100 and Shell Alexia 40 and the multi-functional lubricants Shell Melina S30 and Shell Argina S3 40. Alexia 100 and Alexia 40 are part of Shell Marine’s portfolio of cylinder oils protecting two-stroke engines across a full range of vessel operating profiles, machinery specifications and fuel sulphur contents, now and after the introduction of IMO’s global sulphur cap from January 1, 2020.
Shell Marine offers a complete portfolio of lubricating oils for marine engines burning gas, heavy fuel, gas oil or liquid biofuel. All its engine oils are designed to minimise deposit build-up and keep engines clean. Its Shell Alexia oils meet a full range of vessel type and fuel grade needs offering owners peace of mind on IMO 2020 fuel sulphur content compliance, whether slow steaming, operating in emissions control areas or undertaking fuel switching.
