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 brand new FPSO being built for India’s Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC).

Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour level depressant pumps which might be 18m in length and the other 4 are methanol carry pumps that are 10m lengthy.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors that have been designed and constructed alongside the length of the pumps to observe the temperature of every bearing individually.
pressure gauge incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches every pump to its tank during set up guaranteeing that as the pump is lowered into the tank it remains completely aligned, decreasing vibration and wear throughout 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 where the FPSO (floating manufacturing storage and offloading unit) is being constructed.
The pump supply and installation had to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the length of the pumps, they needed to be put in into the vessel’s tanks through the deck earlier than one other deck above the pumps could probably be constructed. The first phase was completed successfully over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning team supporting the client with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO shall be positioned within the KG-DWN 98/2 subject, approximately 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to supply as much as 90 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It might be equipped to handle the monsoon circumstances prevalent at the area.
