Amarinth has accomplished 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 that are 18m in size and the opposite 4 are methanol lift pumps that are 10m long.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which have been designed and constructed along the size of the pumps to watch the temperature of every bearing individually.
The 18m lengthy pumps incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches every pump to its tank during installation guaranteeing that as the pump is lowered into the tank it stays completely aligned, decreasing vibration and put on during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps have been independently witness examined and licensed by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps were then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore the place the FPSO (floating manufacturing storage and offloading unit) is being built.
The pump delivery and installation had to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they had to be put in into the vessel’s tanks through the deck before one other deck above the pumps might be constructed. The first phase was completed successfully 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 area, 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 shall be outfitted to handle the monsoon conditions prevalent on the area.
