New base oil from Evonik keeps wind turbines turning

Operators of wind energy farms place steep demands on the gear oil for their wind turbines: long oil drain intervals, sustained optimal viscosity of the oil over a wide temperature range, and maximum durability and long life for the gearbox. In VISCOBASE® 5-220, Evonik has developed a synthetic base oil that sets new standards in the field. As the critical key component of lubricants formulated to Evonik’s NUFLUX™ technology standard, it has, in short order, received the essential “thumbs up” from the key 
industrial gearbox manufacturers. With these critical approvals, the way is now open for other high-performance gear applications.
