Wind Turbine Oil – Taking wind turbines to new heights

If you own, operate or service wind turbines you know that downtime costs – and costs a lot.

Wind turbine lubricants need to last as long as possible, offering excellent oxidation and shear stability, whilst protecting key turbine components such as main bearings from failure, and gears from micropitting.

Our experienced field engineers and industry-leading used oil analysis service, Signum℠ Oil Analysis, has meant we have been at the forefront of developments in the wind energy sector for over 30 years.

Introducing new, Mobil SHC™ Gear 320 WT with 7 year warranty

New, long life Mobil SHC Gear 320 WT advanced wind turbine gear lubricant, especially formulated to resist micropitting of modern, case hardened gearing and can operate in both high and low temperature environments. We’re so confident in the durability of Mobil SHC Gear 320 WT gear oil that we offer a 7 year extended warranty.

Proven in the wind sector

Gearboxes in wind turbines operating in North Sea wind farms such as Alpha Ventus, Borkum West and Thornton Bank are protected by high performance Mobil SHC™ gearbox oil, including Mobilgear SHC™ XMP 320.

In fact, Mobilgear SHC™ XMP 320 is the initial-fill gear oil of choice for many of the world’s top wind turbine builders, protecting more than 40,000 wind turbine gearboxes worldwide.

Our engineers have developed specialist wind turbine greases such as Mobil SHC™ Grease 460 WT to give the main, pitch and yaw bearings on wind turbines excellent wear protection, ease turbine start-up at low temperature, and extend re-greasing intervals – all reducing service costs.
