TrustLube system selected for Prelude platform

Offshore staff

OUD GASTEL, the Netherlands – TrustLube has supplied an automatic lubrication system to SBM Offshore for use on Shell’s Prelude FLNG platform in the Browse basin off the coast of Australia.

The TrustLube system consists of an explosion-proof grease cabinet to lubricate the radial wheel, axial boogie, and axial boogie guiding of the world’s largest turret. Stainless-steel-framed grease applicators are used to connect the metering devices to dispense the grease equally on the wheel surfaces. The TrustLube smart system is able to adapt its greasing cycle to the wind direction.

With this system, one metering unit per grease point is used. All metering units work independently, regardless of temperature, tube length, and viscosity of the lubricant. The quantity of grease remains consistent, regardless of outside temperature and pump running time. The TrustLube system is hermetically sealed. No dirt, seawater, or sand can enter the system.
