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

Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour level depressant pumps that are 18m in length and the other four are methanol raise pumps which are 10m lengthy.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors that have been designed and built alongside the length of the pumps to monitor 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 throughout installation making certain that because the pump is lowered into the tank it remains perfectly aligned, decreasing vibration and wear during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps have been independently witness examined and authorized by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. เพรสเชอร์เกจวัดแรงดันน้ำ had been then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore where the FPSO (floating production storage and offloading unit) is being built.
The pump delivery and set up needed to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they needed to be installed into the vessel’s tanks via the deck before one other deck above the pumps might be constructed. The first part was completed successfully over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning staff supporting the client with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO might be positioned within the KG-DWN 98/2 subject, roughly 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to supply as a lot as 90 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It will be outfitted to handle the monsoon situations prevalent at the field.
