Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour point depressant pumps that are 18m in size and the other 4 are methanol carry pumps which might be 10m long.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors that have been designed and constructed alongside the size of the pumps to watch 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 installation guaranteeing that as the pump is lowered into the tank it remains completely 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 manufacturing storage and offloading unit) is being constructed.
The pump supply and installation had to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the length of the pumps, they needed to be installed into the vessel’s tanks through the deck earlier than one other deck above the pumps could possibly be constructed. The first part was completed successfully over the Christmas period 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 subject, approximately 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to provide as a lot as ninety 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It shall be outfitted to handle the monsoon circumstances prevalent at the area.
