Amarinth has completed a US$1.5 million order from Armada Madura for six API 610 VS4 vertical pumps for a new FPSO being built for India’s Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC).

Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour point depressant pumps that are 18m in size and the opposite four are methanol raise pumps which may be 10m lengthy.
pressure gauge octa of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which were designed and built along the length of the pumps to monitor the temperature of each 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 making certain that as the pump is lowered into the tank it remains completely aligned, decreasing vibration and wear during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps have 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 built.
The pump supply and installation had 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 via the deck earlier than another deck above the pumps might be built. The first part was accomplished successfully over the Christmas interval with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning group supporting the client with the installation and commissioning.
The FPSO might be positioned within 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 circumstances prevalent at the field.
