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

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

Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour point depressant pumps which may be 18m in length and the opposite 4 are methanol raise pumps which might be 10m lengthy.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors that have been designed and constructed alongside the length of the pumps to watch the temperature of each bearing individually.
เกจ์วัดแรงดันลม incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches each pump to its tank throughout set up guaranteeing that as the pump is lowered into the tank it remains completely aligned, lowering vibration and wear during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps had been independently witness tested and licensed by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps have been then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore where the FPSO (floating production storage and offloading unit) is being constructed.
The pump delivery and set up had to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the length of the pumps, they had to be put in into the vessel’s tanks by way of the deck earlier than one other deck above the pumps could presumably be built. The first section was accomplished efficiently over the Christmas period 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 area, roughly 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to supply up to ninety 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It shall be outfitted to handle the monsoon conditions prevalent on the area.
