Amarinth has completed a US$1.5 million order from Armada Madura for six API 610 VS4 vertical pumps for a new FPSO being built for India’s Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC).

Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour level depressant pumps that are 18m in size and the other 4 are methanol lift pumps which are 10m lengthy.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which were designed and built along the length of the pumps to observe 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 during set up guaranteeing that because the pump is lowered into the tank it stays perfectly aligned, reducing vibration and wear during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps were independently witness tested and licensed by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps were then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore where the FPSO (floating manufacturing storage and offloading unit) is being built.
The pump delivery and installation needed to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of pressure gauge 4 นิ้ว of the pumps, they had to be installed into the vessel’s tanks by way of the deck before one other deck above the pumps could be built. The first phase was completed efficiently over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning team supporting the client with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO will be positioned in the KG-DWN 98/2 area, approximately 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to produce as a lot as ninety 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It might be outfitted to handle the monsoon circumstances prevalent on the area.
