Two 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 that are 10m long.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which have been designed and constructed along the size of the pumps to observe the temperature of every bearing individually.
The 18m lengthy pumps incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches each pump to its tank throughout set up ensuring that because the pump is lowered into the tank it remains perfectly aligned, lowering vibration and put on during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps had been independently witness tested and authorized by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. ไดอะแฟรม had been then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore the place the FPSO (floating manufacturing storage and offloading unit) is being constructed.
pressure gauge 10 bar and set up needed to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they had to be put in into the vessel’s tanks through the deck before one other deck above the pumps could be constructed. The first phase was accomplished efficiently over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning team supporting the customer with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO might be positioned within the KG-DWN 98/2 field, approximately 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to supply up to 90 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It shall be geared up to handle the monsoon conditions prevalent at the subject.
