Total Lubrifiants is delighted to celebrate a memorable milestone paving the way for the future: the 50th anniversary of TOTAL PRESLIA, its range of turbine oils.

TOTAL PRESLIA’s range of products is used to produce more than 500 gigawatts (GW)/year of electricity worldwide. More than ever, being able to rely on a trusted partner to support and extend the life of equipment is essential in a dynamic energy market and in the demand for low-carbon power generation. Total Lubrifiant’s formulations are optimally formulated to minimize deposits, protect turbines in the most demanding conditions and maintain operations. The long operating life of TOTAL PRESLIA turbine oils helps maximize uptime and reduce overall operating costs.

“For 50 years, we have been proud to offer the most relevant solutions for turbine reliability and performance, thanks to continuous exchanges between our technicians, manufacturers and of course our customers”, says Olivier Bertomeu, Industrial Lubricants director, “At 50 years old, this range has the future ahead and continues to expand. Therefore, our new product, TOTAL PRESLIA EVO, offers exceptional protection against deposits and coatings. It meets the challenge of FLEX technologies*, necessary to manage the energy transition. The adventure has just begun.”

With more than 130 subsidiaries and a global supply chain, Total Lubrifiants is able to meet the turbine oil needs of companies around the world. In addition, it offers access to value-added services, such as oil monitoring and implementation of the onsite turbine-filling program.

Thanks to its experience in many sectors, such as fossil fuel power plants, nuclear, hydroelectric, biomass, geothermal and concentrated solar energy, Total Lubricants, through its TOTAL PRESLIA range, has products approved by major manufacturers.

*FLEX technologies: turbines with specific characteristics adapted to more frequent start & stop cycles made necessary by the use of these turbines in addition to variable and periodic renewable energy production.
