Amarinth delivers 18m-long pumps for new Indian FPSO

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).

เกจอาร์กอน of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour level depressant pumps that are 18m in size and the opposite four are methanol raise pumps that are 10m lengthy.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which have been designed and built alongside the length of the pumps to observe 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 installation making certain that as the pump is lowered into the tank it remains completely aligned, reducing vibration and put on during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps 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 delivery and installation had to align with the FPSO build schedule. Because of the length of the pumps, they needed to be put in 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 team supporting the client with the installation 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 produce as much as 90 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It might be outfitted to deal with the monsoon circumstances prevalent at the field.
