ExxonMobil and INNIO collaboration delivers major benefits for power suppliers
• Oil drain intervals can be increased – and often doubled – with Jenbacher N Oil 40 in Jenbacher Type 2, 3, 4, 6 and 9 natural gas engines
• Jenbacher N Oil 40 has been tested and validated in over 800 Jenbacher engines for more than 8 million hours
• The extended oil life, enhanced wear protection, and keep clean properties offered by the product can help reduce life-cycle costs by up to 30% (1)
Jenbach, Austria – April 5, 2023 – Following a collaboration agreement in 2020 between ExxonMobil and INNIO, the two companies produced Jenbacher N Oil 40– a high-performance, long-life lubricant formulated to meet the evolving needs of Jenbacher natural gas engines. INNIO’s latest operational data demonstrates the product’s advanced performance after over 8 million hours of operation in more than 800 units.
Since its launch, Jenbacher N Oil 40 has been widely adopted across INNIO’s Jenbacher natural gas engine fleet. Extensive field validation proves that the lubricant can extend oil drain intervals by as much as two times. In an early adopter engine where the product has been in use for over 35,000 hours, the customer has achieved oil drain intervals of up to 7,000 hours in their Jenbacher J 612 F engine. Thanks to the product’s exceptional wear protection and detergent properties, it can help reduce life-cycle costs by up to 30%, supporting operators in the generation of reliable, efficient power.
