pressure gauge 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).

pressure gauge octa of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour point depressant pumps which are 18m in length and the other 4 are methanol lift pumps that are 10m long.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors that have been designed and built along the length of the pumps to monitor the temperature of every 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 ensuring that as the pump is lowered into the tank it stays completely aligned, lowering vibration and wear throughout operation.
Once assembled, the pumps have been 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 the place the FPSO (floating production storage and offloading unit) is being constructed.
The pump delivery and set up needed to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the length of the pumps, they needed to be put in into the vessel’s tanks via the deck earlier than one other deck above the pumps might be constructed. The first phase was completed efficiently over the Christmas interval with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning staff supporting the customer with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO shall be positioned within the KG-DWN 98/2 area, approximately 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. pressure gauge is designed to supply as a lot as 90 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It shall be equipped to handle the monsoon conditions prevalent on the subject.
