Berge Bulk Maritime records 53% liner wear rate reductions with ExxonMobil
Mobil Serv℠ Cylinder Condition Monitoring gave Berge Bulk Maritime the confidence to push the feed rates lower than they’ve ever been before, with a 19% reduction in cylinder oil consumption as well as reducing liner wear by 53%*.
The combination of Mobil Serv℠ Cylinder Condition Monitoring, high quality lubricants and strong collaboration between the ExxonMobil technical team and the vessel’s crew provided the winning formula to success.
“We are constantly faced with challenges, complexity and uncertainty, in pursuing optimisation” explains Teck Siang Sim, Berge Bulk Maritime. “However, having a reliable and supportive partner makes all the difference. ExxonMobil went the extra mile by sending engineers to attend our conferences, and presenting plans to the ship staff which is a support that is invaluable to our success.”
Furthermore, inspired by the benefits proven on the Berge Everest, Berge Bulk Maritime will be implementing Mobil Serv℠ Cylinder Condition Monitoring across nearly its entire fleet. The implementation will further allow the operator to take advantage of the service’s XRF technology which measures sulphur content ensuring added peace of mind when complying with the IMO 2020 sulphur cap.
