Latest engines have sophisticated cylinder oil dosing systems. For older Wartsila / Sulzer slow speed engines, there is a back fitting lubrication system that reduces cylinder lubricating oil consumption by approximately 25 per cent. First laboratory tested in 2003 and later in two ships, including the RT-flex96C, only after 14,000 hours of satisfactory testing was the system offered to the market. Four vessels built over the last eight years are to be equipped with a Retrofit Pulse Lubricating System with the installation carried out at sea and the switch over done in port.
