Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour level depressant pumps that are 18m in length and the other 4 are methanol lift pumps that are 10m long.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which were designed and constructed alongside the length 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 every pump to its tank throughout installation making certain that as the pump is lowered into the tank it stays perfectly aligned, reducing vibration and wear during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps were independently witness tested and certified by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. เกจวัดแรงดันน้ำประปาราคา were then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore where 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 before one other deck above the pumps might be built. The first part was completed efficiently over the Christmas period 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 produce up to ninety 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It shall be outfitted to deal with the monsoon conditions prevalent on the area.
