Amarinth secures major order from Pakistan Petroleum

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – 6th June 2005


Amarinth’s business agility secures major pump order from Pakistan Petroleum

Amarinth, a UK company specialising in the design, application and manufacture of pumps for the chemical, gas and oil industries has won a significant new overseas order consisting of 10 bespoke pumping units which are destined for Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL) of Karachi. PPL, the largest natural gas producer in Pakistan, chose Ranhill as its Contractor for a USD 21M Engineering, Procurement and Construction project. Amarinth secured the pump order from Ranhill for their expertise in this challenging field along with their ability to deliver bespoke pumps to very tight project deadlines.

PPL laid down demanding requirements for the API pumps, which will be installed at its Adhi Gas Processing Plant II situated in the district of Chakwal near Rawalpindi. The pumps will deliver Liquid Petroleum Gas from the refinery to the bottling plant and need to operate at an extremely high suction pressure. Amarinth designed the pumps to handle the resulting thrust which would otherwise have placed additional strain on bearings and brackets. In addition, the fulfilment time required by Ranhill for this equipment was well below the industry norm for API pumps.

Amarinth, who pride themselves on their agility and customer service, were able to design and deliver a bespoke pump for this application in 20% less time than other manufacturers. As the customer’s specification was finalised, Amarinth made their staff available 24 hours a day to offer advice through conference calls with Ranhill in Malaysia. This ensured that all engineering staff engaged with the project had the latest information to hand during their working day, thereby eliminating any delays that might have occurred.

The pumps are currently undergoing final build and testing in the UK. PPL will then send their engineers to Amarinth in order to learn how to install and maintain the pumps before shipment to Pakistan.

Ron Metcalf, Project Director of Ranhill Berhad, commented: “PPL laid down very tight timescales for this project. We are delighted with the professional manner in which Amarinth met their deadlines and also with the responsiveness and design creativity of their team in resolving the particular engineering issues posed by this project.”

Oliver Brigginshaw, Managing Director of Amarinth added: “Our business is about delivering solutions in the most demanding of environments and we are delighted that Ranhill Berhad recognised our abilities and placed this important order with us. We have met the project expectations, both in design and delivery time, which is good news for all parties concerned. We are now looking forwards to welcoming PPL engineers to the UK for their training.”
