A truly global team, with 28 members from 14 different countries (Japan, the USA and all over Europe).
Experts from all relevant disciplines – ship operators, engine and equipment manufacturers, oil and additive suppliers, classification societies and scientific institutions.
To define common industry positions for the use and maintenance of lubricating oils in different types of engine.
What we do
The WG works to promulgate know-how about marine lubrication (including power plant applications) by producing guidelines and recommendations dedicated to deepen our understanding of this important subject.
Activity centers for complementing inherent engine design reliability with an adequate periphery regarding the use of appropriate lubricants and fuels.
Preparation in subgroups on issues to be discussed and endorsed by the entire Working Group during its meetings.
Our current projects and activities
Future fuel scenarios and their impact on lubrication.
Interaction between lubricants and emission control measures (e. g. SCR).
Update of the CIMAC recommendation on the lubrication of two-stroke crosshead diesel engine (publication currently planned for the end of 2013).
