ExxonMobil helps PT Tringgading Agung Pratama safely extend oil drain intervals by up to 220%

PT Tringgading Agung Pratama (PT TAP) was looking to safely extend the overhaul periods of the two Cummins NTA-855M main engines and two auxiliary units in its Tugboat vessel, TB Gading 1, which operates in the waters around Indonesia. It contacted ExxonMobil for insights into how this might be achieved.

ExxonMobil recommended that PT TAP switch the vessel to Mobilgard™ DEO 40, an extra high performance, mono-grade oil specifically formulated for severe service high-speed diesel engines in marine applications. Its advanced chemistry provides outstanding performance in both modern, demanding low-emission diesel engines, and older diesel engines operating on low or high sulphur distillate fuel.

Mobilgard™ DEO 40 successfully helped extend oil drains intervals from 250 hours to up to 750-800 hours, an increase of up to 220%, as confirmed by ExxonMobil’s Mobil Serv℠ Oil Drain Optimization Program.

Based on the success of the trial, it is estimated that the customer can expect an annual saving of around USD $1,000 (about IDR 15,235,000), per vessel.
