The UK company provided the original pumps to ADNOC in 2016 for sodium hypochlorite dosing duties on the Umm Lulu offshore platform positioned within the Arabian Gulf, 30km north-west of Abu Dhabi, UAE. Because sodium hypochlorite is extremely corrosive, Amarinth originally used titanium alloy for all wetted elements.
During a routine capital assessment, ADNOC determined the pumps were due for refurbishment. The sodium hypochlorite dosing pumps are important to production and refurbishment needed to align exactly with a specific shutdown schedule.
The shutdown schedule would not enable the pumps to be returned to the UK for a full strip, evaluation and refurbishment, so Amarinth used its UAE facility to undertake the work.
Amarinth’s UAE facility was capable of complete the strip and evaluation report inside five working days and suggest two refurbishment initiatives. The first involved a full rebuild, check and warranty of the primary pump replacing all the titanium parts including impeller, shaft, bearing brackets and mechanical seals. The work wanted to be accomplished in simply eight weeks. Amarinth prioritised the ordering of the titanium elements and was able to have the parts manufactured and shipped to the UAE to align with the rebuild schedule. The second project undertook the same work on the opposite two backup pumps to be accomplished on a 24-week schedule.
Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, stated: “Having equipped the original pumps to ADNOC we’ve a wealth of experience in working with titanium parts. We are additionally happy with the expansion of our native UAE facility for service and assist and which enabled us to efficiently expediate this particular refurbishment, benefiting both ADNOC and the native economic system.”
