Amarinth has won a US$1 million order to provide 14 API 610 VS4 vertical pumps for the Abu Dhabi National Oil Co’s (ADNOC) Ruwais Refinery East in the United Arab Emirates.

The 14 API 610 11th edition VS4 vertical pumps with Plan 53B seal support systems and top-up trollies will be used for closed drain duties, condensate and oil transfer. They will be manufactured in either stainless steel or carbon steel, depending on their duties, and are all ATEX Zone 2 compliant.

Amarinth and its UAE-based agent Nama Development Enterprises secured the order from Integrated Specialized General Contracting Co (ISCCO). The UK pump company has a good understanding of ADNOC processes and practices having completed a number of successful projects for the oil company.

The Ruwais refinery is expanding, adding a further 600 000 barrels/day capacity to its existing 837 000 barrels/day. When completed in 2025, Ruwais is expected to be the world’s biggest refining and petrochemicals complex.
