Amarinth, which specializes in the design, application and manufacture of centrifugal pumps and associated equipment to the oil and gas, petrochemical, chemical, industrial, power and renewable energy markets, has secured a further order of API 610 OH2 pumps to be used aboard Total’s new Egina floating production storage offloading (FPSO) vessel.

Amarinth’s Malaysian operation secured this second order for API 610 OH2 super duplex pumps for a de-sanding and process water treatment package aboard Total’s Egina FPSO following on from its successful delivery of a previous order for API 610 OH2 pumps with Plan 53B seal support systems.

The 200,000 b/d capacity Egina FPSO vessel, being built by Samsung Heavy Industries of Korea at a cost of US$3.3 billion, will arrive in Nigeria around April 2017 and will be working in Total’s $16 billion Egina deepwater field situated 150km off the coast of Nigeria in water depths of up to 1750m.

“We are delighted to provide these additional pumps to the Egina FPSO project, an order which also underlines our decision to open our office in Malaysia last year enabling us to offer even better support to our rapidly growing customer base in Asia Pacific,” said Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director, Amarinth.
