Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour point depressant pumps which are 18m in length and the opposite 4 are methanol carry pumps which would possibly be 10m lengthy.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which have been designed and built along the length 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 because the pump is lowered into the tank it remains completely aligned, reducing vibration and wear during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps have been independently witness tested and authorized by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps have 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 build schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they needed to be installed into the vessel’s tanks through the deck earlier than another deck above the pumps could be built. เกจวัดแก๊สlpg was completed successfully over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning group supporting the customer with the installation and commissioning.
The FPSO shall be positioned within the KG-DWN 98/2 field, 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 might be equipped to handle the monsoon conditions prevalent at the area.
