New independent testing of the recently launched BIOGEN WIRESHIELD® wire rope and ROV umbilicals lubricant demonstrates consistently high lubrication performance within an industry-leading temperature range of -50ºC to +180ºC.
It means that offshore operators can depend on a single wire rope and ROV umbilical lubricant in all operating conditions. There is no risk of BIOGEN WIRESHIELD going brittle at very low temperatures, and at the highest operating temperatures, such as those endured by the wire ropes in active heave compensation (AHC) systems, the lubricant performs to the same high standard, eliminating the safety risks associated with inferior products melting and dripping onto decks.
This latest performance characteristic builds on the performance and safety credentials of BIOGEN WIRESHIELD, which has already been certified under EU Ecolabel as an Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant (EAL) to comply with the requirements of the latest US VGP (Vessel General Permit). It enables the marine and offshore industries to meet stricter environmental safety requirements whilst benefiting from enhanced day-to-day operational performance.
