According to Tendani, the power utility week has since received much pressure to meet energy demands as the need for Independent Power Producers (IPPs) has become dire and the importance of the role of renewable energy sources has increased significantly.
The number of gas engines using unconventional fuels such as landfill, bio or sewage gas has grown significantly to meet this demand. Renewable energy sources are on the other hand friendlier on the environment and also more sustainable, they also run on big engines that require frequent maintenance and are costly to maintain.
“This has greatly impacted Shell to come up with the right kind of oils to improve engine maintenance and performance for these specialized applications,” she says.
