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 are 10m long.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors that have been designed and built along the length of the pumps to observe 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 throughout set up guaranteeing that as the pump is lowered into the tank it stays perfectly aligned, lowering vibration and wear during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps have been independently witness tested and certified 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 production storage and offloading unit) is being constructed.
The pump supply and set up 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 through the deck earlier than one other deck above the pumps could possibly be built. The first section was accomplished efficiently over the Christmas interval with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning staff supporting the shopper with the installation and commissioning.
The FPSO might be positioned in the KG-DWN 98/2 field, roughly 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to provide up to ninety 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. เกจวัดแรงดันแก๊สco2 might be geared up to handle the monsoon circumstances prevalent at the field.
