This marks the company’s second order with Amarinth following the successful delivery of previous pumps and underscores Amarinth's reputation as a trusted partner in highly challenging offshore environments.

The FPSO Agogo, is scheduled to commence operations in the fourth quarter of 2025 as part of the Agogo integrated west hub development project off Angola. With a field development plan encompassing 36 wells, including both production and injection wells, the project demands high-quality solutions to ensure reliable operations.

Compliant with the rigorous standards of NORSOK M-630, which dictate material specifications for petrochemical applications, particularly in offshore environments, these pumps deliver the necessary performance and reliability demanded by the project.

In addition, recognising the unique environmental conditions of the African continent, Amarinth designed bespoke sunshades to go over the motors, safeguarding them against the relentless sun. This approach to product design reflects Amarinth's commitment to ensuring the long-term operational efficiency of its pumps.

The customer’s insistence on an aggressive 26-week delivery schedule to align with Yinson's build timeline reinforces the industry's recognition of Amarinth's ability to deliver under pressure. Leveraging its extensive experience in supplying pumps to FPSO vessels worldwide, Amarinth has once again affirmed its status as a preferred partner in critical offshore projects.
Oliver Brigginshaw, Managing Director of Amarinth, remarked, "Securing a second order with this important Norwegian customer, this time for the FPSO Agogo, represents another significant milestone for Amarinth in our commitment to delivering high-performance solutions in the most demanding of environments, particularly within the burgeoning FPSO market. With a bespoke pump design tailored to meet stringent requirements, we have once again have demonstrated our agility and expertise in addressing complex project needs, supporting our customer and Yinson Production in their endeavours."
