The UK firm supplied the original pumps to ADNOC in 2016 for sodium hypochlorite dosing duties on the Umm Lulu offshore platform positioned in the Arabian Gulf, 30km north-west of Abu Dhabi, UAE. Because sodium hypochlorite is highly corrosive, Amarinth originally used titanium alloy for all wetted components.
During a routine capital evaluation, ADNOC determined the pumps have been due for refurbishment. The sodium hypochlorite dosing pumps are crucial to production and refurbishment had to align precisely with a selected shutdown schedule.
The shutdown schedule wouldn’t permit the pumps to be returned to the UK for a full strip, evaluation and refurbishment, so Amarinth used its UAE facility to undertake the work.
Amarinth’s UAE facility was in a place to complete the strip and evaluation report within 5 working days and suggest two refurbishment projects. The first involved a full rebuild, take a look at and guarantee of the first pump changing all of the titanium parts including impeller, shaft, bearing brackets and mechanical seals. The work needed to be accomplished in just eight weeks. Amarinth prioritised the ordering of the titanium elements and was in a place to have the parts manufactured and shipped to the UAE to align with the rebuild schedule. The second challenge undertook the identical work on the opposite two backup pumps to be completed on a 24-week schedule.
Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, said: “Having provided the unique pumps to ADNOC we now have a wealth of experience in working with titanium elements. We are additionally happy with the growth of our local UAE facility for service and support and which enabled us to efficiently expediate this explicit refurbishment, benefiting each ADNOC and the local economic system.”
