London, UK – 15 February 2021 – PETRONAS Lubricants International (PLI) today announces the launch of its new PETRONAS Urania oil range, engineered with core strength for both light commercial and heavy duty trucks. With new Strong Tech™ technology, PETRONAS Urania delivers the durability needed to withstand the toughest situations across EMEA.
Facing extreme engine temperatures, oxidation and damaging deposits, PETRONAS Urania brings core strength to the trucks and commercial vehicles that must survive in the harshest conditions under the heaviest loads. From extreme weather to higher demand to restock store shelves quickly, every innovation has been tailored to maximise performance across all major vehicle brands. Through its unique formula this new range of high-quality Engine Oils extends drain intervals, minimises wear, reduces unplanned downtime and ultimately ensures complete operational flexibility.
Developed with StrongTech™ technology at the PLI Global Research & Technology Centre in Turin, Italy, the new formula enables vehicles to stay stronger for longer as the oil forms a uniquely strong fluid film. Incredibly robust molecule chains lock away soot to maintain optimal viscosity and defend against wear and oxidation, extending the oil’s efficiency right up to the next drain. PETRONAS Urania is designed to increase an engines life under pressure, so it can continue to inspire confidence in fleet managers, and reduce the threats faced by those who earn a living behind the wheel.
The profitability that comes with staying on the road and maximising the vehicle’s capabilities is thanks to 20 years of PLI experience in improving fuel efficiency and reducing the total cost of ownership. In addition, the support services PLI provides to its customers further enable users to get the best from their PETRONAS Urania lubricants. Only with the smartest technologies and best support can drivers have the sheer confidence in their truck to get the job done on time and within budget.
These decades of experience and extensive research have produced a better fuel economy, reduced emissions, enhanced reliability and extreme durability. PETRONAS Urania has been engineered with CO2 reduction in mind, so drivers can maximise uptime without compromising on sustainability. For example, the new PETRONAS Urania 5000 5W-30 (which 5000 5w30)maintains a much thinner film compared to conventional 5W-30 engine oils, significantly reducing fuel consumption and harmful emissions. Altogether, PETRONAS Urania with Strong Tech is the range that meets the strictest international standards for quality and environmental impact.
By keeping vehicles on the road for longer, fleet managers and their drivers can not only meet tough regulations for sustainable mobility, but also stay at the forefront of fleet management in the long term.
Domenico Ciaglia, MD EMEA, PLI, said: “Our customers are looking for core strength they can trust. Many of them face challenging schedules, challenging terrains and challenging weather on a daily basis. The new PETRONAS Urania formula provides the strength for trucks to run stronger for longer thanks to development and testing at the most extreme events, including Formula 1, Moto GP and the Dakar Rally. This technology has proven its mettle time and time again. With PETRONAS Urania, fleet managers, drivers and their vehicles will have the confidence to face any challenge.”
To share more of PETRONAS Urania’s core strength with its users, the PLI team will be bringing the Unstoppable Heroes - PETRONAS Urania Roadshow to Europe. More information will be released later this year.
