Amarinth has supplied four API 610 VS4 pumps to ADNOC for the Al Mandous underground oil storage project in Fujairah, United Arab Emirates.

ADNOC is building the world’s largest underground oil storage facility in Fujairah with a capacity of 42 million barrels of crude oil.

The four Amarinth API 610 11th edition VS4 vertical pumps are 4m long transfer pumps and are supplied with Plan 53B seal support systems. The pumps are manufactured in D2 super duplex stainless steel to ADNOC specification, which includes Shell DEP standards.

With the available footprint for the pumps limited, Amarinth designed a bespoke baseplate on which to mount the Plan 53B seal support systems which reduced the overall space required.

Amarinth says it was selected for the project following the company’s successful delivery and continued support of pumps for previous demanding ADNOC projects.

“We are delighted that ADNOC once again asked Amarinth to supply pumps for a challenging project,” said Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth. “We have built an in-depth understanding of ADNOC specifications from previous successful projects and so have been able to once again deliver on time to ADNOC against the requirements of this project.”
