Our lineup of Mobil™ SHC synthetic oils and greases helps protect your critical components and enhance wind turbine availability in the rapidly evolving wind industry.

Mobil™ industrial lubricants are used in more than 40,000 wind turbines worldwide. This includes our synthetic wind turbine lubricant – Mobilgear SHC™ XMP 320 – which, in more than 46,000 used-oil samples, has been shown to have superb wear protection and virtually no alerts due to oil aging. Our next generation wind turbine oil, Mobil SHC Gear 320 WT, takes this performance to new levels of equipment protection, operating temperature and long oil life.

There’s a reason so many companies trust Mobil industrial lubricants to keep their wind turbines spinning. We deliver optimum equipment protection and oil performance in a wide range of conditions, including onshore, offshore, dry or wet, and at high or low temperatures.

We also offer Mobil Serv℠ Engineering Services – including Wind Turbine Gearbox Flush and Fill, as well as startup and cleanliness guidance – which help support wind farm operators in achieving outstanding equipment protection and long service intervals, resulting in safety, environmental and operating cost benefits.

Onshore or offshore, you can count on our technology leadership and application expertise to help keep your wind turbines running at peak efficiency.
