Its mission is to standardize and simplify processes that ensure product quality across the wind industry.

“We’re excited to continue our relationship with APQP4Wind,” said Dave Meyer, vice president, AMSOIL Wind and Industrial Business. “Our certification demonstrates the quality of our products for wind assets. It offers additional assurance to our wind customers that they’re getting the best possible lubricants for their equipment.”

AMSOIL was the world’s first lubricant supplier to earn APQP4Wind certification, in 2021. Today, it is one of two lubricant suppliers to have earned the designation.

When AMSOIL INC. entered the wind industry in 2005, wind-asset managers were struggling to find a wind-turbine gearbox lubricant capable of delivering superior protection without requiring frequent and expensive oil changes.

Many asset managers could expect a high percentage of their gearboxes to fail within the first 10 years of a 20-year design life, driving up operating costs. AMSOIL developed a synthetic gearbox lubricant that delivers protection and longer service life in the demanding conditions in which turbines operate. It has a proven record of more than 10 years of continuous run time with no additive top-offs.
