Amarinth delivers 18m-long pumps for model spanking new Indian FPSO

Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour point depressant pumps which are 18m in length and the opposite four are methanol carry pumps which may be 10m long.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which have been designed and constructed along the size of the pumps to watch the temperature of each bearing individually.
The 18m lengthy pumps incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches every pump to its tank throughout set up ensuring that as the pump is lowered into the tank it stays perfectly aligned, reducing vibration and put on during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps had been independently witness tested and certified by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps had been then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore the place the FPSO (floating manufacturing storage and offloading unit) is being built.
The pump supply and installation needed to align with the FPSO build schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they had to be put in into the vessel’s tanks through the deck before another deck above the pumps could be built. The first section was accomplished successfully over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning staff supporting the customer with the installation and commissioning.
The FPSO shall be positioned in the KG-DWN 98/2 area, approximately 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to produce as much as ninety 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. เกจอาร์กอน might be outfitted to handle the monsoon conditions prevalent at the area.
