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 level depressant pumps that are 18m in length and the other 4 are methanol lift pumps which would possibly be 10m lengthy.
pressure gauge of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which were designed and constructed along the size of the pumps to watch the temperature of every bearing individually.
The 18m long pumps incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches every pump to its tank throughout set up guaranteeing that as the pump is lowered into the tank it remains perfectly aligned, lowering vibration and put on during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps were independently witness examined and licensed by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps were then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore the place the FPSO (floating manufacturing storage and offloading unit) is being constructed.
The pump delivery and set up needed to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they needed to be put in into the vessel’s tanks by way of the deck earlier than one other deck above the pumps could presumably be constructed. The first section was accomplished successfully over the Christmas interval with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning team supporting the customer with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO shall be positioned within the KG-DWN 98/2 subject, roughly 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to produce as a lot as 90 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It will be outfitted to handle the monsoon circumstances prevalent at the area.
