The UK company equipped 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 highly corrosive, Amarinth originally used titanium alloy for all wetted components.
During a routine capital assessment, ADNOC decided the pumps have been due for refurbishment. The sodium hypochlorite dosing pumps are important to manufacturing and refurbishment had to align exactly with a particular shutdown schedule.
The shutdown schedule wouldn’t permit the pumps to be returned to the UK for a full strip, assessment and refurbishment, so Amarinth used its UAE facility to undertake the work.

The first involved a full rebuild, test and warranty of the primary pump changing all the titanium parts together with impeller, shaft, bearing brackets and mechanical seals. The work wanted to be completed in just eight weeks. Amarinth prioritised the ordering of the titanium components and was in a place to have the components manufactured and shipped to the UAE to align with the rebuild schedule. The second venture 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 supplied the original pumps to ADNOC we have a wealth of experience in working with titanium parts. We are additionally pleased with the growth of our native UAE facility for service and assist and which enabled us to efficiently expediate this specific refurbishment, benefiting both ADNOC and the native economic system.”
