Unconditional of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour level depressant pumps which are 18m in length and the opposite four are methanol lift pumps which would possibly be 10m lengthy.
Instantly of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors that have been designed and constructed alongside the size of the pumps to watch the temperature of each 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 ensuring that because the pump is lowered into the tank it stays perfectly 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 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 delivery and installation had to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they had to be installed into the vessel’s tanks through the deck earlier than another deck above the pumps could probably be built. The first phase was accomplished successfully over the Christmas interval with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning staff supporting the client with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO might 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 up to ninety 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It might be outfitted to deal with the monsoon situations prevalent on the field.
