เกจวัดแรงดันน้ำไทวัสดุ has completed a US$1.5 million order from Armada Madura for six API 610 VS4 vertical pumps for a new FPSO being built 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 length and the opposite four are methanol raise pumps which are 10m long.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which have been designed and built alongside the length of the pumps to watch the temperature of every bearing individually.
The 18m long pumps incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches every pump to its tank during set up guaranteeing that because the pump is lowered into the tank it stays completely aligned, reducing vibration and wear during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps had been independently witness tested and licensed by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps were then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore where the FPSO (floating production storage and offloading unit) is being constructed.
The pump supply and set up needed to align with the FPSO build schedule. Because of the length of the pumps, they had to be put in into the vessel’s tanks via the deck earlier than another deck above the pumps could presumably be built. The first section was completed efficiently over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning group supporting the client with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO shall be positioned within the KG-DWN 98/2 field, approximately 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to produce as a lot as ninety 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It will be outfitted to handle the monsoon situations prevalent at the field.
