Amarinth has been supplying API 610 pumps for over a decade and 2012 was another successful trading year with its fullest order book to date and the delivery of pumps into a number of prestigious projects worldwide. Further expansion to our team, new offices and recognition as a leading company within the region have placed the company in a strong position for 2013
2012 has flown past following the fullest order book we have had to date and the delivery of pumps into a number of prestigious projects worldwide. We have also just made our first significant sales into Iraq, one of our target growth regions, and have appointed a local agent, Horizon Development International (Basra), to help us develop the market.
During the year we further expanded our team increasing employee numbers by 15%. To house the new staff we started work on new offices giving us an additional 150% more floor space – more about that in a future newsletter.
To end last year, Amarinth received a “Future 50” award recognising us as one of the leading 50 companies in our region with the best prospects for future growth, innovation and contribution to the locality.
During last year we approached by Wood Group to design a cost effective solution on a very tight deadline that would pump fluid from the caisson (leg) of a North Sea oil rig into an accumulator. This required a bespoke 13m long vertical sump pump to be designed for installation within the caisson, which then operated at a 5 degree angle from the vertical. Quite a challenge…!
We received positive feedback from our last Technical Bulletin about the various curve operating regions within API 610. To follow on from this we have now written a Technical Bulletin covering flush options used on API 610 VS4 pumps. This explains the options available including: internal flush; external strainers; external clean flush and some advanced monitoring options that we have recently developed with a client in the Middle East.
We will continue to develop these Technical Bulletins to help clarify certain points we feel can sometimes cause confusion. Our next release will discuss the changes with API 610 specifically relating to pump testing. If you would like us to clarify a particular topic we would be happy to consider it for future publications.
