Leading international marine lubricant supplier Total Lubmarine has secured a contract to supply lubricating oil to the Miraflores power plant in the Panama Canal. The installation is located near the existing locks, a few miles from Panama City.

Total Lubmarine’s Talusia Universal lubricating oil will be used on two low-speed MAN B&W 12K80MC-S engines, which will form part of the expansion of the Miraflores installation, the first two-stroke stationary power plant in Panama and Central America - a market previously dominated by four-stroke power plants.

Serge Dal Farra, Head of Marketing at Total Lubmarine, said: "This is a highly prestigious order for Lubmarine, secured in competition with all major oil companies worldwide. It is an endorsement of Lubmarine’s products and services, and recognition of its role as a leading supplier of lubricants to the power plant sector. Both the Panama Canal authorities and MAN acknowledged Lubmarine’s industry knowledge, technical and logistical expertise, product availability and proven service levels of service excellence.”

Lubmarine has been working in Panama since 2011 under a marketing co-operation agreement with Maxum Oil Services, which includes the distribution of marine and power plant sales in Panama. As part of this agreement, Lubmarine’s Aurelia TI products have been used to lubricate three new power plants in the region.

Total Lubmarine is due to supply 350 tonnes of lubricant to the new Miraflores plant during March and April this year, in accordance with the exact delivery needs of the Panama Canal authorities.

Dal Farra remarked: "Tank trucks and product facilities are ready to meet the supply demands of this new project, without compromising our present supply agreements with our vessel network and existing power plant clients."
