Amarinth secures order to supply API 610 OH1 and VS4 self-priming pumps to Abu Dhabi International Airport

Amarinth, a leading company specialising in the design, application and manufacture of centrifugal pumps and associated equipment to the Oil & Gas, petrochemical, chemical, industrial and renewable energy markets, has secured an order out of its new Dubai office for API 610 OH1 and VS4 self-priming pumps to move aviation fuel around the Abu Dhabi International Airport as part of the ADIA Expansion Project.

Amarinth recently opened a new office in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), following rapid growth of its Middle East business. Managed by Tarek Helamieh, the team have just won their first order to provide API 610 OH1 and VS4 self-priming pumps to Abu Dhabi International Airport (ADIA) working closely with Larsen & Toubro, with whom Amarinth has a good relationship already.

Larsen & Toubro was awarded the EPC contract by Takreer, a subsidiary of state owned Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, for raising the storage capacity and providing additional distribution of aviation fuel as part of the ADIA Expansion project. The airport is expanding its terminal facilities to take a larger share of the global airline market, increasing capacity from the current 7 million passengers a year to more than 40 million a year when the new terminal facilities and stands are completed.

Amarinth will be supplying its API 610 OH1 B Series pumps and its renowned API 610 VS4 vertical pumps to move aviation fuel from the fuel depot around the terminals to the jet refuelling points. The duties also required Amarinth to undertake bespoke design work on the baseplates.

Oliver Brigginshaw, Managing Director of Amarinth, commented: “We have a good relationship with Larsen and Toubro and are pleased that as EPC for increasing the storage capacity and providing distribution of jet fuel for this important project in the United Arab Emirates that they entrusted our pumps with the task of ensuring jet fuel reaches the refuelling points at the terminals. We look forward to further opportunities to provide pumping solutions into the AIDI Expansion project and other prestigious projects in the Middle East from our new Dubai office.”
