Amarinth – specialising in the design, application and manufacture of centrifugal pumps and associated equipment to the oil and gas, petrochemical, chemical, industrial and power markets – has secured an order for bespoke utility and fresh water pumps from Hyundai Heavy Industries for the platform being built for ADMA-OPCO to operate in the Nasr oil field, offshore of Abu Dhabi.
The stainless steel utility and chilled water pumps will be installed on an offshore platform being built for ADMA-OPCO to operate in the Nasr Full Field Development Project, 130 km northwest of Abu Dhabi. The specification of the ISO pumps required the same level of diligence that would normally be expected for an API project and so Amarinth were able to guide HHI in understanding and meeting the specification.
The pumps are required to operate at higher temperatures and pressures than normal utility pumps and so are designed with bespoke heavy duty baseplates to meet the vibration requirement stipulated by ADMA-OPCO and have fully enclosed drip pans and bespoke wear rings. The order was completed with a full certification and documentation package, again with a level of content not usually associated with ISO pumps.
Oliver Brigginshaw, Managing Director of Amarinth, comments, “This was an unusual project being for ISO pumps but to a level of specification usually associated with API. We are delighted that HHI selected Amarinth once again for a high-profile project and we are working closely with HHI to deliver pumps that will once again meet the exacting expectations of ADMA-OPCO.”
