The expansion of the alternative energy sector has greatly influenced the development of energy-specific lubricants.
Gas engines and the harsh environments in which they operate present a significant technical challenge to lubricant designers. Q8Oils have developed a gas engine lubricant that overcomes the problems associated with the poor quality and impure fuels that power the engines.
In wind turbines, the requirements for wear protection and the ability to resist extreme working conditions are particularly important. Q8Oils has invested in the market and using highly refined Kuwaiti crude oil has developed a lubricant which is able to protect turbine gearboxes.
