SPRING, TX – June XX, 2017 – ExxonMobil is now a preferred global lubricants supplier for GE’s Jenbacher Type 2, 3 and 9 gas engines. As part of this new global collaboration, ExxonMobil will help owner-operators of Jenbacher gas engines enhance equipment performance through the use of its Mobil Pegasus™ family of premium gas engine oils.
ExxonMobil and GE will also continue to build on more than two decades of collaboration by coengineering high-performance gas engine oil technologies that meet the evolving needs of GE gas engine platforms.
For more than 50 years, the Mobil Pegasus family of oils has helped gas engine operators extend engine life, increase efficiency and reduce costs. These products are formulated to deliver extended oil life capability, keep-clean technology, controlled oil consumption and exceptional wear protection.
“We’ve built a strong working relationship with GE and many end users over the past two decades, but this new collaboration validates the leadership of our Mobil Pegasus family of lubricants and underscores the many benefits they can help deliver to end users,” said Tim Hinchman, Strategic Global Alliance director at ExxonMobil. “Through this collaboration, we also look forward to working with GE to engineer new lubricant technologies for Jenbacher gas engines that will help their customers further protect their businesses in the years to come.”
For gas engine operators, these benefits include reducing the number of oil changes and oil purchases required, enhancements to the energy efficiency and reliability of their equipment, and increased engine availability while lowering operating costs.
GE’s Jenbacher gas engines are commonly used in cogeneration/combined heat and power applications. To help protect these engines, customers will be able to take advantage of a full range of products in the Mobil Pegasus family, including Mobil Pegasus™ 705 and Mobil Pegasus™ 605 Ultra 40.
