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

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

Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour level depressant pumps which may be 18m in length and the other four are methanol lift pumps that are 10m long.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which have been designed and constructed along the length of the pumps to observe the temperature of each bearing individually.
The 18m long pumps incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches every pump to its tank during installation ensuring that as the pump is lowered into the tank it stays perfectly aligned, decreasing vibration and put on throughout operation.
Once assembled, the pumps have been independently witness examined and certified by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps had been then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore where the FPSO (floating production storage and offloading unit) is being built.
The pump delivery and installation needed to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of In record time of the pumps, they needed to be installed into the vessel’s tanks by way of the deck earlier than one other deck above the pumps could possibly be constructed. The first part was accomplished efficiently over the Christmas interval with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning staff supporting the client with the installation and commissioning.
The FPSO might be positioned in the KG-DWN 98/2 field, approximately 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 geared up to deal with the monsoon conditions prevalent at the field.
