Shell Marine has officially launched ‘Shell Alexia 140’, a two-stroke engine cylinder oil which offers protection for the most modern efficient engines against cold corrosion issues and optimise oil feed rates when fuel grades change.

Shell’s ‘Alexia 140’ joins Alexia S3 (BN25), Alexia S4 (BN 60), Alexia 50 (BN 70) and Alexia S6 (BN100), in a range covering fuel types from LNG to HSFO, operating regimes from full load to slow steaming, and engines of all ages.

Panos Deligiannis Tankers, Neda Maritime Agency Technical Director, said: “We welcome the always pioneering character of Shell Marine that resulted in this latest addition to its comprehensive range of two stroke engine cylinder oils. Protecting our engines is critical, and matching the right cylinder oil with vessel operating profile and engine specific requirements is a crucial parameter for ship/engine worthiness and efficient maintenance, whatever the fuel grade being burned.”

‘Alexia 140’ complies with the need to match cylinder oil with operating environment, Jan Toschka, Shell Marine Executive Director, noted. Adding that, Shell Lube Monitor, a cylinder condition monitoring program, will enhance, simplify and accelerate data management and reporting.

The launch of ‘Alexia 140’ follows a a No Objection Letter (NOL) for commercial use from MAN Diesel & Turbo, which earlier this week announced that its L51/60DF engine successfully passed its Type Approval Test (TAT).

‘Alexia 140’ is available from the ports of Rotterdam, Bremerhaven, Hamburg, Antwerp, Tanjung Pelepas, Busan and Salalah.
