Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour point depressant pumps which might be 18m in length and the opposite four are methanol carry pumps which may be 10m long.
เกจ์วัดแรงดันน้ำมันเครื่อง of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which have been designed and built alongside 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 each pump to its tank throughout installation making certain that because the pump is lowered into the tank it remains perfectly aligned, reducing vibration and put on throughout operation.
Once assembled, the pumps had been independently witness tested and licensed by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps were then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore where the FPSO (floating manufacturing storage and offloading unit) is being built.
The pump delivery and installation needed to align with the FPSO build schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they needed to be put in into the vessel’s tanks via the deck before another deck above the pumps could probably be built. The first part was accomplished efficiently over the Christmas interval with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning team supporting the shopper with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO shall be positioned within the KG-DWN 98/2 field, roughly 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to provide as a lot as 90 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It shall be outfitted to deal with the monsoon conditions prevalent on the subject.
