Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour point depressant pumps which are 18m in length and the opposite 4 are methanol raise pumps which may be 10m long.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which have been designed and built along the size of the pumps to watch the temperature of each bearing individually.
The 18m long pumps incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches every pump to its tank during set up making certain that because the pump is lowered into the tank it stays completely aligned, decreasing vibration and wear throughout 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 supply 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 through the deck earlier than one other deck above the pumps could be constructed. The first phase was completed successfully over the Christmas interval with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning staff supporting the shopper with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO shall be positioned in the KG-DWN 98/2 field, approximately 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. pressure gauge nuova fima ราคา shall be outfitted to deal with the monsoon situations prevalent on the area.
