Amarinth wins order for vertical pumps from ISCCO for ADNOC Ruwais Refinery East

Amarinth API 610 VS4 pump undergoing testAmarinth, global manufacturer of low lifecycle cost centrifugal pumps and associated equipment for offshore and onshore oil and gas industries, nuclear and renewable energy generation, desalination, process and industrial markets, has secured an order with its agent NAMA for 14 API 610 VS4 vertical pumps from ISCCO for the ADNOC Ruwais Refinery East, UAE

The Ruwais refinery in the UAE is owned by ADNOC and has undergone significant expansion since being commissioned in 1981. The most recent project will add a further 600,000 bpd capacity to the existing 837,000 bpd. Ruwais is expected to be the world’s biggest refining and petrochemicals complex upon completion of the proposed expansion in 2025.

The US$1mn order for Amarinth was secured working in close partnership with the UAE-based agent NAMA Development Enterprises. Integrated Specialised General Contracting Company (ISCCO) approached NAMA for its reputation of delivering into major projects and high in-country value (ICV), a procurement-led initiative introduced by ADNOC for its suppliers focusing on local supplier selection and development.

The 14 API 610 11th edition VS4 vertical pumps with Plan 53B seal support systems and top-up trollies will be installed at the Ruwais East Refinery for closed drain duties, condensate and oil transfer. Depending on their duty, the pumps will be manufactured in either stainless steel or carbon steel, and all are ATEX Zone 2 compliant.

The pumps were required on an aggressive deadline of 36-weeks, however Amarinth and NAMA went one-step further and working closely with ISCCO and ADNOC agreed a split schedule so that seven of the pumps will be delivered ahead of schedule. Amarinth will also provide on-site support during installation of the pumps from its Engineering Commissioning team.

Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, commented, “We will leverage our strengths in providing bespoke pumps on short lead times and our ability to work with customers in a flexible way to meet the demands of this project which once again underlines our support of the oil and gas industry in the UAE.”
