Alexander Trukhan, CEO, Gazpromneft Lubricans, commented: “Aspiring to the status of technological leader of the domestic market, as our company does, involves the use of high-tech solutions not only in producing goods, but also in developing channels through which to promote them, as well as in delivering after-sales service. In launching the G-Energy Academy project we are, essentially, making sure that the high-quality of the products offered by our company is supplemented by qualified solutions for any problems arising in the course of operating machinery. The digital and technological development of information and training tools is a hot trend at the moment, which we are trying to utilise to best effect in fulfilling this objective.”
