Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour level depressant pumps that are 18m in size and the opposite 4 are methanol raise pumps which are 10m long.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which have been designed and constructed alongside the length of the pumps to observe the temperature of each bearing individually.
The 18m lengthy pumps incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches every pump to its tank throughout set up ensuring that as the pump is lowered into the tank it remains completely aligned, reducing vibration and put on during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps were independently witness tested and certified 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 constructed.
The pump supply and installation needed to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they needed to be installed into the vessel’s tanks by way of the deck earlier than another deck above the pumps could presumably be built. The first section was completed successfully over the Christmas interval with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning team supporting the shopper with the installation and commissioning.
The FPSO shall be positioned within the KG-DWN 98/2 subject, roughly 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to provide as a lot as 90 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It shall be outfitted to deal with the monsoon situations prevalent at the area.
