Amarinth succeeds against Covid-19 challenges

09 October 2020

Amarinth has succeeded against the many challenges posed by Covid-19 to achieve an on-time delivery of four high-capacity pumps to a producing oil field, Equatorial Guinea. 

Amarinth was tasked by the contractor of the oil field operator to supply four high capacity horizontal pumps, two API 610 OH2 pumps for produced water treatment and two central process transfer injection pumps. The large pumps contain between five and ten impellers each and are manufactured from duplex stainless steel with 3.1 material certification. They are Zone 2 Hazardous Area compliant and comprehensive NDT/NDE was required.

Early in the Covid-19 outbreak, Amarinth took decisive steps in how it would manage its commercial and engineering teams and allocation of factory space in order to remain operational whilst adhering strictly to the UK government recommendations and ensuring the safety of all its employees. In fact, 90% of the global Amarinth workforce was able to continue working remotely, with full network connectivity to Amarinth’s software platforms, video conferencing, and secure servers.

The result of this proactive planning was that for the contractor, technical evaluation meetings and contract progress meetings could continue uninterrupted using Amarinth’s comprehensive video conferencing capabilities.
