Amarinth wins pump orders in Asia Pacific from Yinson and Fatima

Centrifugal pump manufacturer Amarinth has secured two new pump orders from Yinson Offshore Production and the Fatima Fertilizer Company.

The order from Yinson includes four stainless steel horizontal pumps, which will be installed on a condensate unit in a hazardous zone onboard a floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel.

The FPSO will be located offshore Nigeria, processing produced oil as part of the Anyala and Madu Field development project. The two fields are estimated to contain combined reserves of 193 million barrels of oil and 0.637 trillion cubic feet of gas.

In order to meet the project schedules, Amarinth will design and manufacture the pumps within a short 18-week delivery deadline.

The second order, from the Fatima Fertilizer Company in Pakistan, is for a four-metre vertical sump pump in duplex stainless steel, to be deployed in the expansion of the company’s nitro phosphate plant in Mukhtargarh, Sadiqabadt, Pakistan.

Amarinth currently supplies spare parts to support several existing Girdlestone pumps for Fatima, so when a new pump was required for the expansion project, Fatima was keen to build on the existing relationship.

The plant processes rock phosphate to produce nitro phosphate fertiliser; the vertical pump will be designed to handle liquid phosphoric acid that also contains particulates.

“We are delighted that our continued investment into the Asia Pacific region, supported through our Malaysian office, is yielding further orders,” said Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth. “In addition, the breadth of markets coming to Amarinth for pumping solutions, spanning oil and gas through to process and industrial, is very encouraging for our future business growth in this region.”
