Amarinth has secured its first order of API 610 pumps through its new Malaysian agent, Terra Energy Sdn.Bhd, for Petronas Penapisan. The order, for API 610 11th edition OH2 pumps, is to replace existing API 610 8th edition, Japanese manufactured, Shin Nippon pumps at the Petronas Penapisan operated Kerteh Refinery.
Located in Terengganu, Malaysia this plant refines indigenous crude oil into high value petroleum products for domestic and export markets.
The new pumps are a bespoke design with a reduced size baseplate to provide a direct fit into the existing plant and pipework thereby reducing downtime during installation. The D1 Duplex pumps will be used in one of the caustic processes and are designed to hazardous area compliance Ex nA II T3 X. They will be completed on a 24-week delivery schedule. Terra Energy are delivering all associated pipework modifications and extended support.
Oliver Brigginshaw, Managing Director of Amarinth, commented: “We are delighted to receive this first order from our new agent Terry Energy in Malaysia. Over the past few years we have provided pumping solutions to various Petronas companies, but Petronas Penapisan is new to us and we look forward to receiving more orders with Terry Energy for both the Kerteh Refinery in addition to other projects in Malaysia.”
