Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour point depressant pumps which are 18m in length and the opposite 4 are methanol carry pumps which might be 10m lengthy.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors that have been designed and constructed along the size of the pumps to watch the temperature of every 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 guaranteeing that as the pump is lowered into the tank it remains perfectly aligned, decreasing vibration and put on throughout operation.
Once assembled, the pumps had been independently witness tested and certified 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 production storage and offloading unit) is being built.
The pump supply and set up had to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of เกจวัดแรงกด of the pumps, they had to be installed into the vessel’s tanks by way of the deck before another deck above the pumps might be constructed. The first part was accomplished efficiently over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning team supporting the customer with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO shall be positioned in the KG-DWN 98/2 area, roughly 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to provide up to ninety 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It shall be equipped to handle the monsoon situations prevalent at the subject.
