Amarinth to supply arctic-ready pumps to Russian utility
01 November 2011
Amarinth is to supply eight pumps worth $850,000 for the processing of produced water and other utilities, including waste water off Sakhalin Island, Russia. This remote sparsely populated area experiences polar conditions for much of the year. Six Amarinth API 610 VS4 vertical pumps manufactured in duplex steel and two electro-submersible pumps have been fully winterised to withstand the intense cold. Amarinth has previously supplied pumps to TengizChevrOil in Kazakhstan.
Four of the pumps will replace existing Japanese pumps; Amarinth has designed bespoke mounting plates so that the new pumps would directly interchange with the existing pumps without the need for any modifications to the existing plant.
Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, commented: “We are delighted with this order. Working on a project in Russia always poses some financial challenges, but working closely with the banks we were able to find creative financial solutions.
"The documentation in these international projects requires multi-party approvals across a number of time zones that can cause serious delays. However, we are pleased to report that the investment we have made over the past couple of years in our comprehensive document management system has once again ensured that working across different time zones and authorities has not introduced any delay in the lead time.”
