Keep equipment running and electricity flowing

Whether you’re providing base load or supplementing peak demand, your equipment has to be running or ready to run at all times. We can help. We understand today’s power markets and can provide industrial lubricants to help you optimize plant efficiency and uptime. 

Heavy-duty turbine plants

Utility customers are counting on your output. We help you achieve the equipment reliability you need to deliver. Chevron offers premium industrial lubricants to help protect your turbines from the deposits and varnish that can cause poor performance and outright failures. We also provide lubricants for the ancillary equipment that surrounds your turbines and supports your operation.  

Reciprocating gas engines

As more of the power grid moves to gas-fired combined-cycle generation, gas engine availability and reliability is more critical than ever. Chevron helps with low-ash gas engine oils formulated to protect against deposits and corrosive acids, reduce lubricant depletion and extend drain intervals. We work with leading OEMs to develop lubricants for their latest engine designs to help extend equipment service life, streamline maintenance and minimize operating costs. 

Wind turbines

The gearboxes installed deep inside your remote, difficult-to-service wind turbines are the heart of your operation. Chevron helps you keep them protected and producing. Our industrial gear oils help reduce the lubricant breakdown and acids that can cause corrosion, deposits, micro-pitting, cracks and fractures in gears and bearings. Our experts also can help you implement optimal drain intervals to streamline maintenance and used oil analysis to help you predict and prevent failures.  

Protection across your operation

Chevron has developed specialized knowledge, outstanding products and tailored programs to cover a wide range of applications for combined-cycle power plants. 

Making lubrication a key component in plant design

Coal plant retirements are ushering in a new era of modern natural gas-fired power plant construction. We are getting involved in the front-end engineering and design (FEED) of these plants to help owners build a total lubrication solution into the plans. Our customers are seeing that when they make lubrication part of the plan, they can design plants for optimal efficiency, productivity and performance.
