Q8Oils and INNIO engage in long-term partnership for lubricating Jenbacher gas engines

November 26/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Q8Oils has signed a long-term global partnership agreement with INNIO Jenbacher to supply lubricants for all Jenbacher gas engines that operate on non-natural gas, including biogas, sewage gas and landfill gas, said Hydrocarbonprocessing.

Combining the technical expertise and knowledge of INNIO Jenbacher and Q8Oils will further enhance the durability and efficiency of Jenbacher type 2, 3, 4 and 6 engines. Both companies strongly believe that this partnership will bring strong new benefits to gas engine owners and operators.

Effective 1st October, this new agreement strengthens the close and successful cooperation between INNIO Jenbacher and Q8Oils in recent years. Both companies are intensely cooperating already, and the launch of their new co-branded oil worldwide is planned for Q1 2021.

Frank Rouwens, General Manager Q8Oils, commented: "Today, we are delighted to announce the partnership between Q8Oils and INNIO Jenbacher, which brings together Q8Oils leading technology in gas engine lubrication and Jenbachers world class expertise in designing and building gas engines. Our companies will focus on developments related to biogas and other non-natural gases. We are very happy with this partnership which fits well with our mutual drive to focus research and new developments on sustainable solutions that support the environment and help make our planet a healthier place."

Andreas Kunz, CTO, INNIO commented: We are pleased to build on our co-engineering working relationship with Q8Oils. We have been working closely with Q8Oils in recent years to combine INNIOs product and combustion knowledge with Q8Oils competence in lubricant and additive development. This has resulted in the development of a new lubricant that is designed to meet the demanding requirements of non-natural gas combustion. This lubricant is developed specifically for our reliable and highly efficient Jenbacher Type 2, 3, 4 and 6 engines that operate on non-natural gases. Furthermore, it is specified to give greater protection to engine components and to maximize customer value. The partnership agreement will be a key driver in continuing to improve the performance of our non-natural gases engines in an environmentally friendly way."

Q8Oils has been developing solutions related to the challenges that arise from lubricating gas engines in its in-house research laboratories for 35 years. Through continuous innovation, it provides gas engine owners with lubricants which deliver the cleanest engines and longer oil drain intervals, helping to reduce operational costs.

As MRC informed earlier, Russia's output of chemical products rose in September 2020 by 6.7% year on year. At the same time, production of basic chemicals increased by 6.1% year on year in the first nine months of 2020, according to Rosstat's data. According to the Federal State Statistics Service of the Russian Federation, polymers in primary form accounted for the greatest increase in the January-September output. Last month's production of primary polymers decreased to 852,000 tonnes from 888,000 tonnes in August due to shutdowns in Tomsk, Ufa and Kazan. Overall output of polymers in primary form totalled 7,480,000 tonnes over the stated period, up by 16.4%  year on year.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,594,510 tonnes in the first nine months of 2020, up by 1% year on year. Only high density polyethylene (HDPE) shipments increased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market reached 880,130 tonnes in the nine months of 2020 (calculated using the formula: production minus exports plus imports, excluding producers' inventories as of 1 January, 2020). Supply increased exclusively of PP random copolymer.
