Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour level depressant pumps which may be 18m in length and the other 4 are methanol raise pumps which are 10m lengthy.
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 long pumps incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches each pump to its tank during set up making certain that because the pump is lowered into the tank it stays completely aligned, reducing vibration and wear during operation.
Once assembled, the pumps had been independently witness examined and authorized by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. เพรสเชอร์เกจคือ had been then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore where the FPSO (floating manufacturing storage and offloading unit) is being constructed.
The pump delivery and installation needed to align with the FPSO build schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they needed to be installed into the vessel’s tanks by way of the deck earlier than one other deck above the pumps could probably be built. The first phase 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 subject, roughly 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to produce 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 situations prevalent on the area.
