 LUKOIL Marine Lubricants has introduced the newly formulated NAVIGO 6 CO crankcase oil and NAVIGO 70 MCL AW cylinder oil, offering newly designed additive packages and additional benefits with regard to thermal and oxidation stability, corrosion prevention and wear protection.

According to LUKOIL , the new products come as a result of two years of focused research and development activities aimed at enhancing its standard crankcase and cylinder oil portfolio.
NAVIGO 70 MCL AW is a cylinder oil for marine two-stroke engines covering a wide field of applications and fuel Sulphur contents between 0.5 percent and 3.5 percent. The new cylinder oil is based on the same additive technology for NAVIGO 100 MCL. As the new formulation offers increased engine protection against cold corrosion and enables extended piston overhaul, the name of the established product NAVIGO 70 MCL has been extended by ‘AW’ for ‘Anti-Wear’.
NAVIGO 6 CO is a crankcase oil developed by LUKOIL Marine Lubricants for latest design two-stroke engines. “Our customers benefit from the improved formulation with enhanced detergency and dispersion and improved crankcase cleanliness and deposit control of oil-cooled piston undercrowns,” explained Stefan Claussen, Technical and Marketing Director at LUKOIL Marine Lubricants.
NAVIGO 6 CO is suited for iCOlube, LUKOIL Marine’s onboard unit for intelligent cylinder oil lubrication. This unit combines high BN cylinder oil and new or used system oil to tailor the cylinder oil for each engine. Additional benefits include the reduction of cylinder oil grades the ship needs to store onboard and safe, easy and efficient engine operation for the crew.
Both lubricants have been tested and approved by major OEMs.
