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 lift pumps which are 10m lengthy.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors that have been 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 as the pump is lowered into the tank it remains perfectly aligned, reducing vibration and wear during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps had been independently witness tested and authorized by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps had been then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore where the FPSO (floating manufacturing storage and offloading unit) is being constructed.
ตัววัดแรงดัน and installation had to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the length of the pumps, they had to be installed into the vessel’s tanks by way of the deck before another deck above the pumps could be built. The first part was accomplished efficiently over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning staff supporting the shopper with the installation and commissioning.
The FPSO might be positioned in the KG-DWN 98/2 area, approximately 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to supply up to ninety 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It shall be geared up to handle the monsoon circumstances prevalent at the subject.
