Amarinth provides API 610 pumps for the West Qurna-2 expansion challenge in Iraq

Despite the global Covid-19 pandemic in the course of the design and manufacture, supply was achieved in the required time of simply 32-weeks from order.

The giant pumps had impellers of over 500mm diameter and the casings, that weigh 1.5 tonnes, have been cast in a foundry in the UK. Plan 53B seal help methods were designed to suit inside a constrained footprint and because the pumps had been destined for an ATEX Zone 2 space, the motors, seal support techniques, and instrumentation have been IECEx licensed.

Delivery was achieved on a short 38-weeks, regardless of the global Covid-19 pandemic.
