The UK company supplied the original pumps to ADNOC in 2016 for sodium hypochlorite dosing duties on the Umm Lulu offshore platform situated in the Arabian Gulf, 30km north-west of Abu Dhabi, UAE.

The first concerned a full rebuild, take a look at and warranty of the first pump changing all the titanium parts including impeller, shaft, bearing brackets and mechanical seals. The work wanted to be accomplished in just eight weeks. เกจ์ออกซิเจนsumo prioritised the ordering of the titanium elements and was capable of have the parts manufactured and shipped to the UAE to align with the rebuild schedule. The second challenge undertook the identical work on the opposite two backup pumps to be completed on a 24-week schedule.
