Amarinth has accomplished a US$1.5 million order from Armada Madura for six API 610 VS4 vertical pumps for a model 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 may be 18m in length and the other 4 are methanol raise pumps which would possibly be 10m long.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors that have been designed and built alongside the length 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 guaranteeing that because the pump is lowered into the tank it remains perfectly aligned, lowering vibration and put on during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps were independently witness examined and certified by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps have been then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore the place the FPSO (floating manufacturing storage and offloading unit) is being constructed.
The pump supply and set up had to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the length of the pumps, they had to be put in into the vessel’s tanks via the deck before one other deck above the pumps could be constructed. The first section was accomplished efficiently over the Christmas interval with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning staff supporting the customer with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO shall be positioned in the KG-DWN 98/2 area, 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. Prize will be geared up to deal with the monsoon conditions prevalent on the area.
