At Lubmarine, we aim to simplify ship operators' daily processes by providing flexibility and cost-effectiveness through innovative products and services. As the pioneer of the single oil concept, we have pushed our innovation further, using brand new chemistry to create TALUSIA OPTIMA, the next generation marine cylinder oil.

TALUSIA OPTIMA is a BN 100 marine cylinder oil suitable for the most demanding Tier III two-stroke engines and for operations with fuels of a sulfur content range between 0.0 to 3.5%. This revolutionary lubricant was developed through intensive R&D at our renowned Solaize Research Center (CRES).

TALUSIA OPTIMA has been formulated using Ash Free Neutralizing Molecules (ANM), a unique and patented technology which provides fast and effective acid neutralization without any undesired mineral deposit build-up. High-quality mineral components are used in combination with ANM to provide detergency and cleanliness.

Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs),' MAN Energy Solutions and WinGD (Wärtsilä), have issued Non-Objection Letters (NOLs) for the use of TALUSIA OPTIMA with their entire two-stroke engine range. This follows challenging sea trials of more than 4000 running hours using a wide variety of fuels ranging from 0.0 to 3.5% in sulfur content.

Delivering Results


Suitable for use with fuels ranging from 0.0 to 3.5% sulphur content means only one cylinder oil needs be used onboard. This reduces shore team and crew workloads by avoiding lube oil switchovers; reducing the number of orders;minimizing bunkering operations as well as lowering the risk of human error. Cost savings are also enabled by doing away with the extra storage, stock and equipment needed when dealing with several products.


TALUSIA OPTIMA's outstanding performance allows for a reduced Lube Oil Feed Rate (LOFR) without compromising on engine protection.
Depending on engine types and operating conditions, optimizations of up to 30% can be expected. Your Marine Lubricant Engineer can help you achieve these results rapidly, allowing you to make big savings.


Safety at sea is our shared priority. The outstanding performance and great flexibility of TALUSIA OPTIMA provide ship operators with very high safety margins regardless of the sulfur content of the fuel powering the engines. Risk of engine failure is at its lowest level and wear is greatly reduced.
Consequently, savings can be made on maintenance costs by extending overhaul periods.
