Infinis, a leading generator of renewable power in the UK, has agreed a three year contract with ExxonMobil to help optimise the gas engines operating across Infinis’ 123 landfill gas (LFG) generating sites in the UK. The contract will see the continuation of a working relationship which has been in place for over 15 years.

Under the agreement ExxonMobil will be supplying three gas engines oils which have been specifically developed for use in LFG generating operations: Mobil Pegasus 605, Mobil Pegasus 610 and Mobil Pegasus SR, with Mobil Pegasus SR originally developed to address lubrication issues in gas engines operating at one of Infinis’ own sites in the UK.
As well as supplying a range of gas engine oils, a new technical collaboration has been agreed which will see the ExxonMobil and Infinis technical teams work in partnership to identify additional ways of optimising the performance of lubricants operating in Infinis’ gas engines. Current projects include looking at how the introduction of a telemetry system to monitor oil tanks remotely can help to reduce site visits by Infinis engineers.
Stuart Milne, Cluster Lubricants Manager UK and Ireland, ExxonMobil Lubricants and Petroleum Specialties, said, “Our pioneering experience in developing gas engine oils specifically for use in LFG applications, and our ongoing commitment to research and development, makes us the ideal partner for Infinis. As the unique challenges posed by LFG power generation continue to evolve, we will work in partnership with Infinis to help ensure both organisations remain at the forefront of developing the industry.”
