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

Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour level depressant pumps which are 18m in size and the opposite 4 are methanol lift pumps that are 10m lengthy.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors that have been designed and built alongside the size of the pumps to observe the temperature of each bearing individually.
Myths incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches every pump to its tank during set up making certain that because the pump is lowered into the tank it remains perfectly aligned, reducing vibration and put on throughout operation.
Once assembled, the pumps were independently witness tested and certified 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.
The pump supply and set up needed to align with the FPSO build schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they needed to be installed into the vessel’s tanks via the deck before one other deck above the pumps might be constructed. The first phase was accomplished efficiently over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning staff supporting the customer with the installation and commissioning.
The FPSO will be positioned in the KG-DWN 98/2 subject, 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 outfitted to handle the monsoon circumstances prevalent at the subject.
