The UK firm provided the unique pumps to ADNOC in 2016 for sodium hypochlorite dosing duties on the Umm Lulu offshore platform located in the Arabian Gulf, 30km north-west of Abu Dhabi, UAE. Because sodium hypochlorite is very corrosive, Amarinth originally used titanium alloy for all wetted components.
During a routine capital assessment, ADNOC decided the pumps had been due for refurbishment. The sodium hypochlorite dosing pumps are critical to production and refurbishment had to align exactly with a particular shutdown schedule.
The shutdown schedule would not permit the pumps to be returned to the UK for a full strip, assessment and refurbishment, so Amarinth used its UAE facility to undertake the work.
spmk700 ’s UAE facility was capable of complete the strip and evaluation report within five working days and suggest two refurbishment projects. The first involved a full rebuild, take a look at and warranty of the first pump changing all the titanium components together with impeller, shaft, bearing brackets and mechanical seals. The work wanted to be accomplished in simply eight weeks. Amarinth prioritised the ordering of the titanium elements and was capable of have the parts manufactured and shipped to the UAE to align with the rebuild schedule. The second challenge undertook the same work on the other two backup pumps to be completed on a 24-week schedule.
Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, said: “Having supplied the original pumps to ADNOC we now have a wealth of experience in working with titanium elements. We are also pleased with the growth of our native UAE facility for service and support and which enabled us to efficiently expediate this particular refurbishment, benefiting each ADNOC and the local financial system.”
