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

Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour point depressant pumps which are 18m in length and the opposite four are methanol carry pumps which may be 10m long.
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 throughout set up making certain that because the pump is lowered into the tank it remains completely aligned, decreasing vibration and put on throughout operation.
Once assembled, the pumps had been independently witness examined and certified by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps have been then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore the place the FPSO (floating manufacturing storage and offloading unit) is being built.
Stunning and installation had to align with the FPSO build schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they needed to be put in into the vessel’s tanks through the deck before another deck above the pumps could probably be constructed. The first phase was accomplished successfully over the Christmas interval with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning staff supporting the client with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO will be positioned within the KG-DWN 98/2 area, approximately 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to supply up to 90 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It might be geared up to handle the monsoon circumstances prevalent on the subject.
