After 4,000 hours of rigorous testing, Sinopec Corp's marine cylinder oil 5070 has passed the Wartsila certification processes. The internationally-recognised certification is an important landmark for the company's marine lubes business.
Wartsila is a Finnish manufacturer of specialised diesel engines for ships, which is currently the world's second-largest two-stroke ship engine producer. Wartsila and MAN, from whom Sinopec's marine lubricants also received accreditation, comprise over 90% of the global two-stroke engine market for large ocean-going ships.
Meanwhile, on land Sinopec is also making improvements to its domestic testing facilities. Recently, a Shanghai testing plant, owned and operated by Asia's largest refiner, was significantly enhanced and can now test lubes products to a wide range of international OEM standards.
