Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour level depressant pumps which are 18m in length and the opposite four are methanol lift pumps that are 10m long.
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 each pump to its tank during set up ensuring that because the pump is lowered into the tank it remains completely aligned, lowering vibration and put on during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps were independently witness examined and certified by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps 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 had to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they needed to be installed into the vessel’s tanks by way of the deck earlier than one other deck above the pumps might be built. ไดอะแฟรม ซีล was completed successfully over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning staff supporting the shopper with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO shall be positioned in the KG-DWN 98/2 subject, approximately 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 shall be geared up to deal with the monsoon situations prevalent on the subject.
