Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour level depressant pumps which are 18m in length and the opposite 4 are methanol raise pumps that are 10m long.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which have been designed and built along the size of the pumps to monitor the temperature of each bearing individually.
The 18m long pumps incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches each pump to its tank during installation guaranteeing that as the pump is lowered into the tank it stays perfectly aligned, reducing vibration and put on throughout operation.
Once assembled, the pumps have been independently witness tested and certified by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps had been then disassembled into 3m segments and shipped to Singapore the place the FPSO (floating manufacturing storage and offloading unit) is being built.
The pump delivery and installation needed to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the length 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 possibly be constructed. The first section was accomplished efficiently over the Christmas interval with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning team supporting the shopper with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO might be positioned within the KG-DWN 98/2 subject, approximately 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. ร้านซ่อมเครื่องวัดความดัน is designed to produce up to 90 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It might be equipped to handle the monsoon circumstances prevalent at the area.
