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 constructed for India’s Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC).

Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour point depressant pumps which are 18m in size and the other four are methanol lift pumps which would possibly be 10m long.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors that have been designed and built alongside the size of the pumps to monitor the temperature of each bearing individually.
The 18m long pumps incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches each pump to its tank throughout installation ensuring that as the pump is lowered into the tank it remains perfectly aligned, decreasing vibration and wear throughout operation.
Once assembled, the pumps have been independently witness tested and licensed by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps have been then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore where the FPSO (floating manufacturing storage and offloading unit) is being built.
เพรสเชอร์เกจ and installation had to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they had 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 accomplished efficiently over the Christmas interval with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning group supporting the client 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 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 conditions prevalent on the subject.
