ExxonMobil and GE Launch Advanced Cobranded Turbine Oil


ExxonMobil and GE said the new Mobil SHC 918 EE gas turbine oil is designed for use in multi shaft 7HA, 9HA, 6FA.01 and 7FA GE gas turbines.

Texas, USA: ExxonMobil and GE today announced the launch of Mobil SHCTM 918 EE gas turbine oil, a new technology that may dramatically improve turbine bearing efficiency by up to 15 percent compared to conventional ISO VG 32 turbine oils.

ExxonMobil and GE said the new Mobil SHC 918 EE gas turbine oil is designed for use in multi shaft 7HA, 9HA, 6FA.01 and 7FA GE gas turbines.

Designed for use in multi shaft 7HA, 9HA, 6FA.01 and 7FA GE gas turbines, this technology can help power plant operators reduce energy consumption, and, thus, the cost to produce power.

Developed in collaboration with GE, this gas turbine oil is the first and only lubricant to meet GE’s Energy Efficient (EE) GEK 121603 turbine oil specification, which GE developed exclusively for its highper formance turbines.

In addition to enhanced bearing efficiency, ExxonMobil's research team developed Mobil SHC 918 EE to limit the occurrence of varnish as a result of its excellent thermal stability characteristics, thereby enhancing overall turbine operation reliability.
