Shell synthetic lubricants are a smart investment. They are made of newly created molecules, which are designed to meet demanding specifications. Their structure is closely controlled to help provide the superior performance and properties, such as extra-long oil life and reduced fluid friction, required to lubricate today´s advanced industrial machinery efficiently. Shell synthetic lubricants can help to safeguard capital investment by protecting the equipment from wear and corrosion, even under the most severe conditions. They also offer the longest life oils and greases in the Shell range. Extending lubricant life saves money by cutting maintenance costs and reducing product and energy consumption. The synthetic product portfolio includes the range of Shell Tellus, Shell Omala, Shell Corena and Shell Turbine oil (Shell Turbo) in Fluids and the Greases from Shell Gadus range.

The first edition of the seminar was well received by 120 participants comprising Shell Lubricants´ customers, prospects & OEMs from different industrial sectors including gear box manufacturer, process industry like cement plants, steel, mining, auto components etc. The key participants attending the seminar were Adani Power, Bhushan Steel, John Deere, Thermax, Ultratech Cements, etc. The sessions covered prevalent topics like the need of synthetic lubricants, energy challenges, technology, product applications followed by a panel discussion. The quality of sessions held and the experience provided was appreciated by the attendees.

To further strengthen Shell Lubricants´ partnerships with its customers and OEMs in India, Shell Lubricants plans to continue with this initiative next year.
