Amarinth’s Malaysian operation received this second order for API 610 OH2 super duplex pumps for a de-sanding and process water treatment package aboard Total’s Egina FPSO vessel following its successful delivery of a previous order for API 610 OH2 pumps with Plan 53B seal support systems.

The 200 000 barrels per day capacity Egina FPSO vessel, which is being built by Samsung Heavy Industries of Korea at a cost of US$3.3 billion, will arrive in Nigeria around April 2017 and will be working in Total’s US$16 billion Egina deep water field situated 150 km off the coast of Nigeria in water depths of up to 1750 m.
 
Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth, said: “We are delighted to provide these additional pumps to the Egina FPSO project, an order which also underlines our decision to open our office in Malaysia last year enabling us to offer even better support to our rapidly growing customer base in Asia Pacific.”
