Lubricant specialist Castrol Industrial has signed a purchase agreement for the global supply of its synthetic lubricants with Vestas, a wind turbine manufacturer which has 46,000 turbines and 50 GW of installed capacity around the world.
Following a successful three year trial, Castrol Industrial’s Optigear Synthetic CT will be listed by Vestas as an approved lubricant. Vestas’ global customers can use this gear oil for service fills with confidence, knowing it has demonstrated improvements, which can lead to longer oil life, and enhance a turbine’s performance, reliability, and productivity.
“Vestas is an innovative company and Castrol Industrial has the greatest respect for it. We are looking forward to working alongside the Vestas team globally to support them in achieving their objective of generating the greatest and most sustainable return on wind energy,” said Castrol Lubricants VP John Carey.
