Amarinth delivers 18m-long pumps for model spanking new Indian FPSO

Amarinth has completed 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 level depressant pumps which are 18m in size and the other 4 are methanol carry pumps which might be 10m lengthy.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors that have been designed and constructed along the length of the pumps to observe the temperature of each bearing individually.
The 18m lengthy pumps incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches each pump to its tank during installation guaranteeing that because the pump is lowered into the tank it stays completely aligned, decreasing vibration and put on during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps had been independently witness tested and licensed by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps had been then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore the place the FPSO (floating manufacturing storage and offloading unit) is being constructed.

Because of the size of the pumps, they had to be put in into the vessel’s tanks via the deck earlier than one other deck above the pumps could be built. The first part was accomplished efficiently over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning team supporting the customer with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO will be positioned in the KG-DWN 98/2 field, roughly 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 might be outfitted to handle the monsoon situations prevalent on the field.
