Jakarta – Shell Indonesia (‘Shell’) announced its plan to build its first grease manufacturing plant (GMP) in Indonesia.

The plant is a new addition that will compliment Shell’s existing Marunda Lubricants Oil Blending Plant (LOBP) in Bekasi, Indonesia.

Upon completion, Shell’s new GMP in Indonesia will be capable of producing up to 12 kilotonnes of grease per year, helping to meet the growing demand for premium grease products in the country.

The plant will be built with the latest technology, including a contact reactor, to enhance agility and efficiency.

Jason Wong, Global Executive Vice President of Shell Lubricants, said, “Shell’s success has always been built upon our ability to meet and anticipate our customers’ ever-changing needs.

This investment by Shell in Indonesia is yet another example of our commitment to this philosophy of putting customer demand at the heart of our business.

Indonesia’s economy has grown rapidly in recent years and lubricant products, including grease, are essential enablers for the country’s growth ambitions in almost every sector.

By bringing our supply closer to end users in a reliable, efficient, and sustainable manner, this project will ensure we can be there for our customers for years to come.”

The new GMP will produce grease products under the trademark of Shell Gadus®, which are used in applications such as bearings and gears.

The plant will be able to produce high-quality grease product in a variety of packaging including drum, pail, and fluid bag to serve the diverse needs of customers in various industries, including general manufacturing, pulp and paper, steel, smelter, power, fleet, construction as well as mining.
