Amarinth has accomplished 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 point depressant pumps which might be 18m in length and the other 4 are methanol lift pumps that are 10m long.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which have been designed and constructed alongside the length of the pumps to watch the temperature of each bearing individually.
เกจวัดแรงกด incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches each pump to its tank during set up ensuring that because the pump is lowered into the tank it stays completely aligned, reducing vibration and wear during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps have been independently witness tested 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 production storage and offloading unit) is being constructed.
The pump delivery 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 by way of the deck before one other deck above the pumps might be constructed. The first section was accomplished successfully over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning team supporting the customer with the installation and commissioning.
The FPSO will be positioned in the KG-DWN 98/2 field, approximately 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to produce up to 90 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It will be outfitted to deal with the monsoon conditions prevalent at the subject.
