Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour point depressant pumps which may be 18m in length and the other 4 are methanol lift pumps that are 10m long.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors that have been designed and constructed alongside the size of the pumps to observe the temperature of every bearing individually.
เกจวัดแก๊สหุงต้ม incorporate a supporting system of brackets that Amarinth has designed which attaches every pump to its tank during installation ensuring that as the pump is lowered into the tank it stays completely aligned, reducing vibration and put on throughout operation.
Once assembled, the pumps have been independently witness examined and licensed by DNV at Amarinth’s facility in Rendlesham, UK. The pumps have 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 supply and set up had to align with the FPSO build schedule. Because of the length of the pumps, they had to be installed into the vessel’s tanks by way of the deck before another deck above the pumps might be constructed. The first section was accomplished efficiently over the Christmas period with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning staff supporting the shopper with the installation and commissioning.
The FPSO might be positioned in the KG-DWN 98/2 field, roughly 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to supply as a lot as 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 field.
