Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour level depressant pumps that are 18m in length and the other four are methanol carry pumps that are 10m lengthy.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which have been designed and built along the size of the pumps to watch the temperature of each bearing individually.
The 18m long pumps incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches every pump to its tank during set up making certain that because the pump is lowered into the tank it remains perfectly aligned, lowering vibration and wear throughout operation.
Once assembled, เกจวัดแรงดันลม10bar had been independently witness tested and authorized 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 built.
The pump supply and set up needed to align with the FPSO build 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 another deck above the pumps could be constructed. The first phase was completed efficiently over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning staff supporting the shopper with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO shall be positioned within the KG-DWN 98/2 field, roughly 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to provide up to 90 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It will be geared up to deal with the monsoon conditions prevalent at the area.
