Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour point depressant pumps that are 18m in length and the other four are methanol raise pumps which would possibly be 10m lengthy.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors that have been designed and constructed along the length of the pumps to watch the temperature of each bearing individually.
The 18m long pumps incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches each pump to its tank during set up ensuring that as the pump is lowered into the tank it stays completely aligned, reducing vibration and put on throughout operation.
Once assembled, the pumps were independently witness examined and licensed by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps have 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 ที่วัดแรงดัน of the pumps, they had to be put in into the vessel’s tanks through the deck before another deck above the pumps might be built. The first part was accomplished successfully over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning team supporting the shopper with the installation and commissioning.
The FPSO shall be positioned in the KG-DWN 98/2 subject, approximately 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to produce as much as 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 situations prevalent on the area.
