Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour level depressant pumps which are 18m in length and the other four are methanol raise pumps which may be 10m long.
เพรสเชอร์เกจ of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which have been designed and constructed along 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 during installation guaranteeing that as the pump is lowered into the tank it remains perfectly aligned, reducing vibration and wear during operation.
Once assembled, pressure gauge 10 bar had been independently witness tested and certified by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps were 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 had to align with the FPSO build schedule. Because of the length of the pumps, they needed to be put in into the vessel’s tanks via the deck earlier than another deck above the pumps might be built. The first section was completed successfully over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning staff supporting the customer with the installation and commissioning.
The FPSO might be positioned within the KG-DWN 98/2 field, roughly 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 shall be equipped to handle the monsoon conditions prevalent at the subject.
