When it comes to wind power, lubricants make a big difference

Science & technology

On Chongming Island, at the mouth of the mighty Yangtze River, dozens of wind turbines generate electricity for Shanghai and the surrounding region.

To operate reliably, those wind turbines need synthetic lubricant to protect their intricate mechanics from wear and tear and help reduce downtime.  At ExxonMobil’s Shanghai Technology Center, the Automatic Dilute Particle Counter (ADPC) improves the accuracy of monitoring the cleanliness of synthetic lubricants used in the wind turbines across China by removing gas bubbles, water and additives.

At the heart of innovation is a desire to improve, and ExxonMobil does just that by helping craft the perfect lubricants for China’s energy transformation.
