Amarinth delivers in-line pumps to SABIC's refinery in Saudi Arabia

Amarinth, a world-leading, net zero designer and manufacturer of low life cycle cost centrifugal pumps and associated equipment, primarily for the offshore and onshore oil and gas industries; nuclear and renewable energy generation; defence; desalination; and process and industrial markets, has delivered an order through Gas Arabian Services for bespoke, compact API 610 vertical in-line pumps to be used in the SABIC petrochemical refinery in Yanbu, Saudi Arabia.

The Yanbu petrochemical refinery in the Al Madinah province of Saudi Arabia processes 400 000 bpd of crude oil from the Manifa offshore field, producing high-quality, ultra-low-sulfur refined products. Two horizontal pumps were originally specified for the hazardous area, but these would not fit within the heavily restricted space. Amarinth therefore proposed using API 610 vertical in-line pumps.

The pumps were required on a tight 30 week delivery schedule, and so Amarinth used its know-how to leverage its existing range of API 610 vertical in-line pumps and create a bespoke design with a footprint of 420 mm x 420 mm. The company used FEA analysis and a suite of design tools to ensure that the pumps would operate reliably within the tight design envelope.

Oliver Brigginshaw, Managing Director of Amarinth, commented: “We are delighted to have delivered this further order from Gas Arabian Services for Yanbu refinery which underlines our strength and strong partnerships within the Middle East. The pumps were for a challenging project, both the design work and the tight deadline, but one that Amarinth was once again trusted to deliver on by a world leading producer.”
