POOLE, UK -- Samsung Heavy Industries has commissioned Hamworthy to supply pumps for a newbuild FPSO ordered by Teekay for use on BG’s Knarr field in the North Sea.

Hamworthy will supply its CKL deep well cargo offloading pumps and fire water pump system. The CKL is a single-stage pump with a pipe stack comprising a cargo pipe and an oil-filled drive shaft column. It has an electric motor as its driving unit on the weather deck, which is connected to the pumps unit via long driving shafts.

The offloading pump package, to be supplied by the company’s Svanehøj plant in Denmark, will include 12 cargo, two slop, one skimming and two ballast pumps, electric motors, and switchboards.

Hamworthy’s Singapore plant will provide the fire water pump system, which will include two direct diesel-driven fire water pump skids and two diesel-hydraulic fire water pump skids.

The FPSO, which will have capacity to store 800,000 bbl of crude oil, should start service early in 2014.
