Two of the six API 610 VS4 pumps are pour point depressant pumps that are 18m in length and the other four are methanol carry pumps which would possibly be 10m long.
All of the pumps have PT100 temperature sensors which have been designed and built alongside the size of the pumps to observe the temperature of every bearing individually.

Once assembled, the pumps had been independently witness examined and authorized 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 production storage and offloading unit) is being built.
Free and installation had to align with the FPSO construct schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they had to be put in into the vessel’s tanks via the deck earlier than another deck above the pumps could be built. The first part was completed successfully over the Christmas interval with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning staff supporting the shopper with the installation and commissioning.
The FPSO shall be positioned within the KG-DWN 98/2 field, roughly 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to supply up to ninety 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility. It will be outfitted to handle the monsoon circumstances prevalent on the field.
