In an industry where energy costs represent a significant percentage of total operating costs, emissions regulations are becoming more stringent and where engine reliability is crucial, what impact can maintenance practices and selection of lubricants have in helping power operators meet these challenges?
ExxonMobil, a leading supplier of lubricants to the power industry, has teamed up with respected global power website, PennEnergy.com to determine both current and best practices in gas engine maintenance in the energy industry and the impact of gas engine efficiency on productivity.
Asking hundreds of power organisations to share their insights on maintenance practices, effects of downtime and impacts of engine efficiency, as well as labour, capital and overhead concerns, the research has been conducted to identify best practice and give power organisations advice on how they can achieve a competitive advantage.
According to the research, efficient operation of gas engines affects overall production to a great extent, and compromised energy efficiency affects the bottom line for more than half of survey respondents. High performance gas engine lubrication was noted as one of the more essential aspects of a plant’s maintenance plan.
Above all, the research demonstrated the industry’s need for energy efficiency and reliability in order to achieve increased productivity within an increasingly competitive marketplace.
