Wind turbine lubricant provider Castrol Industrial says it has signed a purchase agreement for Siemens Wind Power to use Castrol's Optigear Synthetic X 320 gear oil.
Castrol says the new contract has been the impetus for starting up the production of Castrol Optigear Synthetic X 320 at its U.S. manufacturing plant in Warminster, Pa., to help the company better serve Siemens' operations in Hutchinson, Kan., and supply locally produced lubricants to other customers in the U.S. and surrounding markets.
Castrol Industrial currently provides 100% fulfillment of all Siemens' wind turbine
gearbox lubrication needs with its Castrol Optigear Synthetic X 320 product and
supply of complementary products, including hydraulic fluids and greases, to the
company's wind energy business.
