Amarinth has delivered two separate orders of API 610 pumps totalling £1.2M for the West Qurna-2 expansion project in Iraq. The first order, from Cannon Artes, was for seven super duplex API 610 OH1 pumps. The bespoke designed pumps are for a low shear application and required specialist Plan 53B seal support systems incorporating air-cooled seals and stainless-steel accumulators. All electrical items were IECEx certified for use in an ATEX Zone 2 hazardous area. Delivery was achieved in the required time of just 32-weeks from order.
The second order, from SICIM, was for three super duplex API 610 OH3 vertical in-line pumps for produced water treatment. Plan 53B seal support systems were designed to fit within a constrained footprint and as the pumps were destined for an ATEX Zone 2 area, the motors, seal support systems, and instrumentation were IECEx certified. Once again, delivery was achieved on a short 38-weeks.
