Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour point depressant pumps which might be 18m in length and the other 4 are methanol raise pumps which are 10m lengthy.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors that have been designed and constructed along the length of the pumps to monitor the temperature of each bearing individually.
The 18m lengthy pumps incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches each pump to its tank throughout set up guaranteeing that because the pump is lowered into the tank it remains completely aligned, lowering vibration and wear throughout operation.
Once assembled, the pumps were independently witness examined and licensed by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps have been then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore where the FPSO (floating manufacturing storage and offloading unit) is being built.
The pump delivery and set up had to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they needed to be installed into the vessel’s tanks via the deck before another deck above the pumps could possibly be built. The first phase was completed successfully over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning group supporting the shopper with the installation and commissioning.
The FPSO might 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 90 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It will be geared up to handle the monsoon conditions prevalent at the area.
