Today’s high demand for energy requires turbines and generators to run at maximum efficiency, with minimum operational downtime. Maintaining the reliability of these large complex machines often comes down to the correct lubricant. This extends both machine life and service intervals, to help keep you running. At PLI, we do more than just supply the right lubricant, we offer the support and services that can take reliability and efficiency to the next level.
INDUSTRIAL LUBRICANTS FOR POWER GENERATION
Lubricants designed to keep you running.
Meeting your challenges with our expertise
When you’re trying to balance meeting demand with maintaining machinery, you need a partner with technical expertise in the power generation industry. At PLI, we’ve developed specialised industry products that can keep heavy-duty turbines running efficiently or protect gas engines against impurities like halogen, siloxane and sulphur.
Reliability with sustainability
While energy demands are growing the plants that power the grid are ageing. Yet they must be maintained to exacting standards to ensure they do not exceed emissions guidelines. Talk to us about our energy saving fluids to help reduce your CO2.
Serviceability. Asking complex gas engines, turbines and generators to operate at peak, and with next to zero unplanned downtime is a real challenge. Ask us how our Partner+ programme can help.
High efficiency output
Increasing the energy yield while running machinery continuously places extra demands on your equipment’s lubrication system. Ask us about products which could help extend fluid drain intervals.
Innovation and digitisation
Like the powergen industry, we use new technology and processes to develop a wider product offering. See how we innovate at our R&T centre in Turin.
Drain intervals extended by 1000 hours
Using Repsol Long Life Biogas 4005, Biogas Fuel Cell were resigned to oil drain intervals of +– 3000 hrs. Then our team offered to conduct analysis every 250 hours to show how PETRONAS could massively extend that.
“PETRONAS GEO BLG extended the drain interval from 3000 to above 4000 operating hours.”

Bearing life increased via temperature decrease
Bearing temperatures decreased by 40%. Bed changes extended from 4 to 6 months. Annual savings due to less oil consumption, approximately €3,500. Our Technical Team proved we could make major savings for Soma Thermal Power.
“With superior base oil and stable structure, PETRONAS Grease CaSX offers big advantages.”
