Amarinth delivers API 610 vertical pumps to Yanbu refinery, Saudi Arabia


Amarinth, global manufacturer of low lifecycle cost centrifugal pumps and associated equipment, has delivered an order through Gas Arabian Services for bespoke compact API 610 vertical in-line pumps to be used in the Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) petro-chemical refinery, Yanbu

The Yanbu petro-chemical refinery in the Al Madinah province of Saudi Arabia processes 400,000 barrels-per-day (bpd) of crude oil from the Manifa offshore field producing high-quality, ultra-low sulphur-refined products. Two horizontal pumps were originally specified for the hazardous area, but these would not fit within the heavily restricted space.

The pumps were required on a tight 30-week delivery schedule and so Amarinth used its renown know-how and agility to leverage its existing range of API 610 vertical in-line pumps and create a bespoke design with a footprint of just 420mm x 420mm. The company used FEA analysis and a suite of design tools to ensure the pumps would operate reliably within the tight design envelope.

Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, commented, “The pumps were for a challenging project, both the design work and the tight deadline, but one that Amarinth was once again trusted to deliver on by a world leading producer.”
