Amarinth, a company specializing in the design, application and manufacture of centrifugal pumps and associated equipment to the Oil & Gas, petrochemical, chemical, industrial and power markets, has delivered two bespoke super duplex API 610 VS4 vertical sump pumps to Descon Engineering for the Borouge petrochemicals complex in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi.

Amarinth secured its second order from Descon Engineering for two 9.5-m long super duplex API 610 VS4 vertical sump pumps. These will be installed at the Borouge 3 plant in Ruwais, 250 km west of Abu Dhabi city, during modification work on the existing header for the sea water intake. Borouge is a JV between the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and European plastics manufacturer Borealis. The Borouge site is now the world’s largest integrated polyolefins complex, with production capacity of 4.5 MMt.

The company utilized its own unique software, which is configured to handle over 100,000 vertical pump variants and includes assemblies and sub-assemblies that have already checked against mating parts for clashes, to deliver a design for the 9.5-m long pump that would fit existing constraints.

The pumps include a bespoke baseplate and, due to their length, additional start-up lubrication for the top bearings which automatically switches off once the process feed has reached them. Amarinth also had to carefully size the pumps to be as efficient as possible in order to work within power limitations at the site.
