Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour point depressant pumps that are 18m in length and the other 4 are methanol lift pumps which may be 10m lengthy.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors that have been designed and constructed alongside the size 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 each pump to its tank throughout installation guaranteeing that because the pump is lowered into the tank it stays completely aligned, lowering vibration and put on during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps had been independently witness examined and certified by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. spmk700 had been then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore where the FPSO (floating manufacturing storage and offloading unit) is being built.
The pump delivery and installation needed to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they needed to be put in into the vessel’s tanks via the deck earlier than one other deck above the pumps could probably be constructed. The first section was accomplished efficiently over the Christmas interval with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning group supporting the shopper with the installation and commissioning.
The FPSO shall be positioned within the KG-DWN 98/2 area, roughly 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to provide as a lot as 90 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It shall be equipped to handle the monsoon situations prevalent on the area.
