Castrol Marine Supplies ISP

Press Release
Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Castrol Marine has announced it is supplying environmentally responsible lubricants to International Shipping Partners (ISP), a global cruise ship management company.

Headquartered in Miami, Florida, ISP offers ship owners a broad range of comprehensive passengership management services. ISP is the only dedicated passengership manager in the world to receive the industry’s highest quality assurance certification, the InterManager Quality Assurance Certificate.

The agreement covers the use of Castrol BioStat, a range of stern tube lubricant grades formulated to deliver enhanced performance and reduced environmental impact when compared to conventional mineral oil equivalents.

Kenneth Engstrom, Executive Vice President of ISP said: “At ISP we continually endeavour to enhance our ship management services in all areas. ISP has achieved certification in ISO 9001- Quality and ISO 14001 Environmental Management from Bureau Veritas. Choosing Castrol BioStat is an extension of our principles and particular concern for preservation of the marine environment.”

The first ISP vessel to switch to Castrol BioStat was Quest: the stern tube was filled with BioStat 220 during routine drydocking inspections at Helsingborg, sweden. The following ISP vessels are also currently using Castrol BioStat grades in their stern tubes: Clipper Adventurer; Clipper Odyssey; Corinthian II; Gemini: Ocean Nova. Plans are in place to use BioStat on additional vessels as their drydockings take place.

John Nolan, Technical Manager for Castrol Marine Americas, said: “Castrol BioStat is specifically designed for stern tubes to deliver effective lubrication with up to 20% water contamination, significantly more than is possible with conventional mineral oils. This allows continued operations under faulty conditions, helping operators to minimise downtime. Additionally, Castrol BioStat affords better protection of bearings and gear components, when compared to conventional mineral oils, to help avoid unscheduled inspections and repairs.”
