Amarinth appoints Nama as new Middle East agent and wins multi-million dollar order

Amarinth has appointed Nama Development Enterprises as one of its growing number of agents in the Middle East. Based in Abu Dhabi, Nama is one of the leading local business groups serving the Oil and Gas, Power and Water and Industrial sectors of the United Arab Emirates economy. Nama will become a cornerstone in Amarinth’s rapid expansion into the region’s oil and gas industry. This new relationship has already yielded a high profile $3.5M order for Amarinth, their largest to date.

Amarinth will supply vertical sump pumps to be used in the harsh and very demanding application of pumping carcinogenic chemicals. Manufactured from special high alloy to a bespoke design, these API pumps are being made to a very tight deadline of just 40 weeks from order.

The pump design had to meet very strict criteria and a specific performance curve laid down by the customer. The vessels in which the pumps will operate are coated with exotic materials and so for cost reasons the pump had to be designed to fit into the smallest space possible. Also additional termination points on the support plate were required to cater for other services in and out of the tank. To withstand the harsh environment the pumps had to be manufactured from special hard exotic alloys. These are rare, difficult to procure and challenging to machine.

Being critical to the start-up of the plant the pumps had to be delivered and tested in less than 40 weeks otherwise the operator would incur significant losses for any days that commissioning was delayed.

A standard pump was not an option and although a number of manufacturers looked at the requirements none could meet the technical requirements or the lead times demanded by the customer. Only Amarinth were able to satisfy both the design criteria and the lead time. This was achieved by delivering a bespoke version of one of proven V series sump pump designs.

Nama will be supporting these products in the region, overseeing the commissioning and installation as well as providing first level technical support.

Oliver Brigginshaw, Managing Director of Amarinth, added: “We are delighted to announce our agreement with Nama and this $3.5M order, our largest to date. Work has progressed smoothly despite a number of mid contract changes and we are now in discussion and bidding for additional pumps for the same site. This will become our first significant reference site in the region allowing future customers to understand our products and capabilities, particularly for these type of arduous conditions, as well as the support Amarinth and Nama can deliver.”
