Amarinth delivers 18m-long pumps for new Indian FPSO

Amarinth has accomplished a US$1.5 million order from Armada Madura for six API 610 VS4 vertical pumps for a model new FPSO being built for India’s Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC).

Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour point depressant pumps which would possibly be 18m in length and the opposite 4 are methanol carry pumps which might be 10m lengthy.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which were designed and built alongside the length of the pumps to observe 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 during installation making certain that because the pump is lowered into the tank it remains completely aligned, reducing vibration and wear throughout operation.
Once assembled, the pumps had been independently witness tested and authorized by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps were 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 had to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the length of the pumps, they needed to be put in into the vessel’s tanks by way of the deck earlier than another deck above the pumps could presumably be constructed. The first part was accomplished efficiently over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning team supporting the shopper with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO might be positioned in the KG-DWN 98/2 field, approximately 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to provide up to 90 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. เกจวัดแรงดัน10bar will be geared up to handle the monsoon conditions prevalent at the area.
