เกจวัดแรงดันลม10bar has accomplished 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 point depressant pumps which are 18m in size and the other four are methanol lift pumps that are 10m lengthy.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which have been designed and built alongside the length of the pumps to monitor the temperature of every bearing individually.
The 18m lengthy pumps incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches each pump to its tank throughout installation making certain that as the pump is lowered into the tank it remains perfectly aligned, decreasing vibration and wear during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps had been independently witness examined and licensed 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 production storage and offloading unit) is being constructed.
The pump delivery and set up had to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they had to be put in into the vessel’s tanks through the deck earlier than one other deck above the pumps could be built. The first section was accomplished successfully over the Christmas interval with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning team supporting the customer with the installation and commissioning.
The FPSO shall be positioned in the KG-DWN 98/2 area, approximately 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to supply up to ninety 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It will be equipped to deal with the monsoon circumstances prevalent at the subject.
