Nikkiso CEIG Announces Successful Large Pump Maintenance in Qatar!

We are proud to announce that our team of experts at Ӱֱ Energy & Industrial Gases Group (CE&IG) has completed the first service disassembly project in Qatar for the largest cryogenic pump ever delivered on a global scale! Renowned for its status as one of the most advanced, reliable, and high-performance products within the liquefied cryogenic gases industry, this pump requires a heightened level of expertise and precision for its servicing.

With a track record of delivering over 7,000 pumps worldwide since 1953, first through our JCC legacy product line, then as Nikkiso, Nikkiso CE&IG is the premier leading manufacturer of cryogenic submerged motor pumps. These pumps have numerous applications in the expanding industrial gas market, such as LNG, LPG, LEG, LN2, Liquid Propylene, Liquid Ammonia and various other liquefied gas applications.

Tasked with the disassembly and thorough inspection of this exceptional pump, our dedicated team in Doha, Qatar, ensured the examination of its components to guarantee optimal performance and safety. The pump has a weight of nearly 9 tons and operates at temperatures below -100 degrees Celsius and pressures reaching up to 100 bar in handling Liquid Ethylene.

  • The disassembly process involved carefully removing the pump from its submerged position, disconnecting the electrical and mechanical connections, and transporting it to the workshop.
  • The inspection process involved checking the pump casing, impeller, shaft, bearings, seals, and motor for any signs of damage or wear.
  • The replacement process involved sourcing new parts from Nikkiso Cryo, Inc., and installing them according to the manufacturer’s specifications.

We extend our sincere gratitude to our Client for entrusting us with this critical task, and to Nikkiso Cryo, Inc., for their technical support and guidance. Our heartfelt thanks to our dedicated team members for their unwavering commitment, hard work, and professionalism in contributing to the successful completion of this project.

Our service aims to extend the pump’s life, enhance performance, and contribute to Qatar’s LNG industry success. This achievement underscores our capability and unwavering commitment to supporting local markets, with a specific focus on servicing not only our existing pumps but also those of our competitors and any cryogenic expanders.
