The marine lube supplier said it had received a letter of no objection from MAN-ES, for the use of Talusia Universal (BN 57, SAE 50) on MAN B&W 2-stroke engines operating on fuels with less than 0.5%S VLSFO.
Talusia Universal was tested on an 8S50MC-C MAN B&W engine operating on VLSFO and MAN-ES engineers concluded its performance was “acceptable”
“We are very pleased to receive this approval and requalification for use with the latest IMO 2020 low sulphur fuels. My team has worked extremely hard with MAN-ES, whose close cooperation has been key in achieving this successful outcome,” said Total Lubmarine Technical Director, Jean-Philippe Roman.
“Following rigorous tests, the engine appeared very clean, with negligible wear, demonstrating the high quality of the Talusia Universal solution.”
