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 new FPSO being built for India’s Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC).

Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour level depressant pumps which may be 18m in size and the other four are methanol lift pumps that are 10m long.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which have been designed and constructed alongside the size 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 each pump to its tank throughout installation ensuring that as the pump is lowered into the tank it remains completely aligned, decreasing vibration and wear 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 production storage and offloading unit) is being constructed.
The pump supply and set up had to align with the FPSO build schedule. Because of the length of the pumps, they had to be put in into the vessel’s tanks by way of the deck before one other deck above the pumps could possibly be built. The first section was accomplished successfully over the Christmas interval with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning group supporting the customer 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. เกจแรงดันสูง is designed to produce up to 90 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It might be outfitted to handle the monsoon situations prevalent on the field.
