Total Lubmarine has extended the global reach of its technical support services with the opening of a new Diagomar Plus Laboratory in Chicago, Ill.

The new lab opening means the marine lubricant specialist now has five centers around the world - with Chicago joining Ertvelde (Belgium), Singapore, Shanghai and Panama City.

"North America is an increasingly busy market for us and the opening of the Chicago Lab ensures we have a specialist team on hand to deliver onshore dedicated technical support to our customers," said Olivier Suming, Service Product Manager at Total Lubmarine.

Through the new Lab, Total Lubmarine's customers in North America are able to access lubricating oil analysis services for monitoring the performance and condition of marine engines and auxiliary machinery. The range of services available through the new Chicago Lab include standard analyses for Engine Oil, Non-engine Oil, Drain Oil, Thermal Oil, Stern tube Oil, and EAL (Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant).

The combination of technical services, expert lubricant knowledge and specialist insight offered by Total Lubmarine's Lab network is intended to enable ship operators and crews to decide the best courses of action specific to their vessel. This is supported by dedicated marine lubricant specialists from Total who can assist and advise when required.
