Amarinth adapts pumps for Coral FLNG demands
Amarinth has won two orders for API 610 OH2 pumps with Plan 53B support systems for Eni’s Coral South development offshore Mozambique.
WOODBRIDGE, UK – Amarinth has won two orders totaling $750,000 for API 610 OH2 pumps with Plan 53B support systems for Eni’s Coral South development offshore Mozambique.
The project is in Area 4 of the Rovuma basin. Coral, which contains around 450 bcm (16 tcf) of gas, will be developed initially via theworld’s first ultra-deepwater FLNG vessel.
Amarinth’s Malaysia office secured both orders. The first, required on a 28-week delivery, was for an API 610 OH2 pump with Plan 53B seal support system for installation on a de-sanding package.
The second, again with a 28-week deadline, was a larger order for eight API 610 OH2 pumps with Plan 53B support systems. One special requirement was for a 600-lb flange rating on the discharge and suction nozzles, twice the normal API 610 loading.
Amarinth performed design and stress analysis using finite element analysis tools to prove and guarantee the high ratings.
The pumps will operate in hazardous areas and needed to be fully IEC/EX compliant on all electrical items.
