The UK company supplied the unique pumps to ADNOC in 2016 for sodium hypochlorite dosing duties on the Umm Lulu offshore platform located within the Arabian Gulf, 30km north-west of Abu Dhabi, UAE. Because sodium hypochlorite is extremely corrosive, Amarinth originally used titanium alloy for all wetted parts.
During a routine capital assessment, ADNOC determined the pumps were due for refurbishment. The sodium hypochlorite dosing pumps are crucial to manufacturing and refurbishment needed to align precisely with a particular shutdown schedule.
The shutdown schedule would not allow the pumps to be returned to the UK for a full strip, assessment and refurbishment, so Amarinth used its UAE facility to undertake the work.
Amarinth’s UAE facility was able to full the strip and evaluation report within 5 working days and suggest two refurbishment tasks. The first involved a full rebuild, check and guarantee of the first pump changing all the titanium parts together with impeller, shaft, bearing brackets and mechanical seals. The work needed to be completed in simply eight weeks. Amarinth prioritised the ordering of the titanium components and was in a place to have the elements manufactured and shipped to the UAE to align with the rebuild schedule. The second challenge undertook the same work on the other two backup pumps to be accomplished on a 24-week schedule.
Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, said: “Having provided the unique pumps to ADNOC we’ve a wealth of expertise in working with titanium components. We are additionally happy with the expansion of our native UAE facility for service and assist and which enabled us to efficiently expediate this explicit refurbishment, benefiting each ADNOC and the native financial system.”
