Amarinth provides winterised pumps to the oil fields of remote Russia

Amarinth, a leading company specialising in the design, application and manufacture of centrifugal pumps and associated equipment to the industrial, chemical and petrochemical industries has won an order for $850,000 for eight pumps to be used in the harsh and demanding conditions off Sakhalin Island, Russia.

Sakhalin Island is a remote sparsely populated area which for much of the year experiences polar conditions. The six Amarinth API 610 VS4 vertical pumps manufactured in duplex steel and the two electro-submersible pumps have been fully winterised to withstand the intense cold. The pumps will be used in the processing of produced water and other utilities, including waste water.

Amarinth was awarded the contract based on their experience and success of providing pumps for similar sub-zero projects, including to TengizChevrOil in Kazakhstan and to Sakhalin Energy Investment Company (SEIC) through PSN, who now provide the technical support services to SEIC.

Four of the pumps will replace existing Japanese pumps and Amarinth 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.

The project has been commercially challenging, working to a 10 hour time difference and providing documentation to GOST-R. With its state-of-the-art documentation system however, Amarinth has been able to keep all parties involved in the process around the clock, and the company’s previous experience of GOST on projects in Kazakhstan and Russia has ensured that there has been no delays in the tight deadlines.

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.”
