Siemens Energy required four API 610 12th Edition OH5 Vertical In-line pumps on an extremely tight deadline of 28 working weeks to meet their project schedule with YPF, Argentina. YPF is the main oil and natural gas producer in Argentina and the cooling water pumps will be installed in the Luján de Cuyo crude oil refinery, which is currently undergoing expansion and modernisation.
Although Siemens Energy had not worked with Amarinth previously, based on Amarinth’s global reputation for delivering high-quality API 610 pumps on short lead times, Siemens Energy selected Amarinth for this challenging order.
Amarinth designed and manufactured the four pumps and carried out a full suite of hydrodynamic performance and mechanical witness testing before finally air-freighting the pumps to successfully meet the deadline set by Siemens Energy.
In addition to the four pumps, Amarinth also manufactured a comprehensive operating spares package, including impellers, shafts, seals, wear rings, gaskets etc. to accompany the pumps to Argentina.
Oliver Brigginshaw, Managing Director of Amarinth, commented: “We are delighted to have successfully completed our first order from Siemens Energy for this important YPF project in Argentina, underlining once again our ability to produce pumps on short lead times for projects anywhere in the world. We look forward to building a close working relationship with Siemens Energy on future projects.”
