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 lift pumps which might be 10m long.
เกจวัดแรงดัน of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which have been designed and built alongside the size of the pumps to monitor the temperature of every bearing individually.
เกจวัดแรงดัน incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches every pump to its tank during installation 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 had been independently witness examined 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 needed to align with the FPSO build schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they had to be put in into the vessel’s tanks by way of the deck earlier than another deck above the pumps could be built. ไดอะแฟรม was accomplished successfully over the Christmas interval with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning group supporting the shopper with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO might be positioned in the KG-DWN 98/2 subject, roughly 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 shall be geared up to handle the monsoon conditions prevalent at the field.
