LUKOIL TO SUPPLY OILS TO AVTOTOR FACTORY IN KALININGRAD
Wednesday, April 5, 2017
Under a contract signed with AVTOTOR Holding, LUKOIL will supply the Kaliningrad automobile factory with lubricants for the assembly-line priming of the small diesel engines of a new model range. The synthetic motor oils from LUKOIL will be used in modern diesel engines having a capacity of 1.5 kilowatt to 56 kilowatt and employed in various industries.
“In 2016, we began manufacturing
AVTOTOR-branded low-powered engines for construction equipment, storage and
farm machinery, load carriers and small vessels. AVTOTOR would like to see a broader
supply network for quality components and materials required for the new project.
LUKOIL was chosen as a supplier after the Russian-manufactured oil had been successfully
tested in the new engines”, Alexander Sorokin, General Director of AVTOTOR
“We are pleased that AVTOTOR, Russia’s biggest multi-brand automaker, chose a LUKOIL lubricant of all others for the new project. Earlier, we had supplied lubes for the priming of some foreign-branded cars turned out in Kaliningrad. We hope that anytime soon we will offer to AVTOTOR other interesting options for cooperation”, Maxim Donde, General Director of LLK-International (a wholly-owned LUKOIL subsidiary), noted.
