Great Offshore’s supply vessel, Malaviya 25, reported significant improvements in equipment cleanliness and oil consumption after switching from a competitor oil to Mobilgard 412 in its Rolls Royce L9P series.
Engineers observed improved cleanliness in engine components, with minimal deposits on the crankcase, main engine bearings, rocker arms and plungers. Malaviya 25 also reported improved engine equipment reliability, reduced maintenance costs and a decrease in unscheduled downtime.
By using Mobilgard 412 to lubricate its engines, Malaviya 25 was able to extend its drain interval period by almost 30 per cent and its oil consumption decreased from 0.9 gms/kwh to 0.7 gms/kwh. The filter change interval improved by almost 28 per cent
“The performance of Mobilgard 412 was found extremely satisfactory for the lubrication of Rolls Royce L9P series engines. The approximate savings by reduction of specific lube oil consumption, increasing oil drain intervals and other consumables has given us immense benefit of close to $32,000 annually,” said P. Lakshman, Technical Deputy General Manager at Great Offshore.
