Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour level depressant pumps which would possibly be 18m in length and the other 4 are methanol raise pumps that are 10m lengthy.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which have been designed and constructed alongside the length of the pumps to monitor 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 during installation ensuring that because the pump is lowered into the tank it remains perfectly aligned, decreasing vibration and wear during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps had been independently witness tested and authorized by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps had been then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore where the FPSO (floating manufacturing storage and offloading unit) is being constructed.

Because of the length of the pumps, they had to be put in into the vessel’s tanks by way of the deck earlier than another deck above the pumps could be constructed. The first section was completed successfully over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning staff supporting the customer 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 much as 90 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It will be geared up to deal with the monsoon situations prevalent on the area.
