The customer, a Norwegian company specializing in energy recovery and water treatment solutions for the offshore oil and gas sector, has placed an order with Amarinth for the FPSO Agogo, currently under construction in Malaysia.

The FPSO Agogo is scheduled to commence operations in the fourth quarter of 2025 as part of the Agogo integrated west hub development project offshore 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.

Amarinth's bespoke pump design, tailored for low NPSH duties to accommodate the confined headroom aboard FPSO vessels, highlights the company's expertise in addressing complex challenges.

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, recognizing the unique environmental conditions of the African continent, Amarinth designed bespoke sunshades to go over the motors, safeguarding them against the relentless sun.

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 endeavors."
