From large ocean going tankers to small fishing boats, maintaining optimum efficiency in marine equipment helps to achieve increased reliability and lower costs across vessel operations - consistently improving profitability.
An effective lubrication programme is a critical part of any preventative or adaptive maintenance programme designed to achieve optimum efficiency, ensuring that everything from the main engine to the secondary equipment runs smoothly, no matter the environment in which it operates. Vessels can range After many years of detailed research and development, Shell Marine Products has developed an extensive portfolio of individual lubricants, each designed to address the specific challenge of achieving optimum performance in the relevant application.
More than the strength of the individual products, companies working with Shell Marine Products benefit from Shell’s global network of local experts. These specialists help our customers to develop, implement and maintain effective lubrication programmes for each and every piece of equipment in the fleet. This can result in:
Excellent main engine cleanliness when using Shell Alexia S4
Minimal piston under crown deposits when using Shell Argina
Great protection against lacquer formation when using Gadinia AL
To list just a few of the advantages of SMP's lubrication programmes.
Using the concept of 'Oil Stress' (developed in our own research laboratory – the largest of its kind anywhere in the world). Shell specialists ensure that the full requirements of every application are thoroughly understood. Product and service recommendations are based on an integrated understanding of the interaction between the equipment, its operating characteristics and the lubricant to ensure they are well matched for optimum efficiency.

Types of marine lubricants
Our marine lubricants portfolio
Many gearboxes and axles use different materials and operate under different conditions. A single oil used for both applications may compromise protection and efficiency. Shell Spirax oils are formulated to help deliver the specific oxidation, shear stability and performance characteristics needed to best provide protection, power and efficiency for each application.
Protecting axles and gears can reduce maintenance costs, extend vehicle life and maximize your return on investment. The Shell Spirax range of axle and gear oils offers proven protection, including the latest synthetic oils that deliver exceptional wear, pitting, bearing-failure and corrosion protection for heavy-duty axles, transmissions and gears operating under highly stressed conditions.
Bearings, gears and oil pumps must be well protected for a long machine life. That’s why the Shell Morlina range offers a range of bearing and circulating oils, from robust, reliable products to fully synthetic products fortified with extreme-pressure (EP) additives.
The Shell Morlina range enables you to match the oil life of the fluid to your operational needs. This includes specialty products that continue to function even when contaminated with water, dust or dirt as well as the fully synthetic Shell Morlina S4B, which provides the longest oil life under severe conditions in the Shell Morlina range.
Every part in a compressor has been meticulously engineered, so it’s important to find a lubricant that will protect and maintain its performance. Shell Corena compressor oils promote system efficiency by suppressing foaming, releasing trapped air and rapidly separating out condensed water. They also help reduce wear, so your compressors can continue working as their designers intended.
Whatever your technical needs and operational conditions, there is a Shell Corena compressor oil to help you get the most from your equipment investment. The range includes the latest synthetic oils for enhanced wear protection in high-temperature conditions and extended operations.
Shell offers oils for low, medium and high speed engines. Shell offers the Shell Alexia and Shell Melina range for low speed engines. For medium speed engines Shell offers the Shell Argina and Shell Gadina range. For high speed engines Shell offers the Shell Rimula range.
