As a world leader in marine engine lubricants and technical support, we had great pleasure in participating in a recent webinar organized by Marine Propulsion Magazine publisher Riviera.


Lubmarine Marketing Director Serge Dal Farra was a panelist on the webinar, joining other lubricant manufacturers and engine manufacturer MAN ES, exploring the views of the marine industry to better understand the impact that new and future marine fuels will have on engines, ship management and marine engine lubrication.


Serge highlighted the importance of taking a multi-layered approach to effective marine engine lubrication and was invited to introduce Lubmarine’s innovative new suite of digital lubrication management services, providing vessel operators, owners and management teams around the world with total connectivity for each individual vessel in their fleet.


Members of the webinar audience, made up of the global shipping industry, were also invited to share their views on some of the key topics raised during the panel discussion, providing invaluable insights as the industry transitions towards new fuel solutions.


Key responses included:

  • 60% of respondents said they were planning on implementing a digitalized lubrication monitoring strategy in 2023
  • 84% of those asked believed implementing a robust lubrication management programme is either a priority or an absolute priority in conjunction with using a performance cylinder oil
  • 94% of respondents recognized that the most efficient way to establish an effective lubrication strategy was through collaborative work between engine makers and lube oil suppliers
  • 93% of respondents considered that “condition based” maintenance is the most efficient strategy.


“The webinar was a great opportunity to share our thinking around some of the likely impacts that future fuel developments could have from a lubricant and lubricant management perspective, but it was also a really valuable experience to see what is shaping the wider shipping industry’s thinking around this transition,” said Serge.


“What was really positive to see was such a strong synergy between the benefits of our new digitized lubrication management and engine monitoring services and what the webinar audience said was important to them in terms of seeing engine lubrication monitoring programmes as a key priority. A majority of those in the audience are planning to implement digital lubrication strategies in 2023.


“The audience also recognized the benefits to them of collaborative working between lubricant supplier and engine maker which is reassuring to hear as that relationship between ourselves and MAN ES, WinGD and J-ENG is setting the foundation for new product and services developments as we move towards that fuels and energy transition.


“The feedback showed that our new digitized services suite is absolutely geared to delivering what the shipping industry is wanting from an engine lubrication management perspective, next year and in the future which was great to hear,” he added.
