With this new contract extension, Shell Lubricants has become well positioned with its globally renowned brands – Shell Rimula, Shell Mysella & Shell Argina in the three primary segments where Aggreko operates, while for Aggreko, it facilitates them to leverage economies of scale and maximize the value it offers to its customers.
