MV Konetti Increases Oil Drain Intervals

Switching to Mobil Delvac 1™ 5W-40 helped increase oil change intervals by a factor of eight

By implementing Mobil Serv℠ Lubricant Analysis and switching the MV Kornett’s auxiliary engine over to Mobil Delvac 1™ 5W-40 from a mineral oil, Reederei Eicke was able to increase its vessel’s engine oil drain interval from 500 hours to more 4,250 hours.

Excluding savings related to reduced oil waste, maintenance and fuel consumption, the company was able to realise an annual lubricant cost saving of over 50 per cent.

Off the back of these results, Reederei Eicke is switching the auxiliary and emergency engines of its entire fleet to Mobil Delvac 1 5W-40. This is estimated to help the company more than cut in half its annual lubricant expenditure.
