Nexans launches its next generation SUTA-FLEX Subsea Umbilical Termination Assembly
Nexans combines SUTA-FLEX with its wide range of umbilicals to deliver a complete solution from a single supplier
Paris May 4, 2015 - Nexans is at OTC 2015 to launch its next generation SUTA-FLEX Subsea Umbilical Termination Assembly. SUTA-FLEX is designed to work in combination with Nexans’ range of umbilicals to provide a complete, single source solution that enables oil and gas customers to benefit from more efficient and cost-effective project execution.
A Subsea Umbilical Termination Assembly is an electro-hydraulic system that enables multiple wells to be controlled by a single one umbilical by connecting a number of subsea control modules to the same communications, electrical and hydraulic supply lines.
The Nexans SUTA-FLEX concept offers a flexible modular design, based on standardized features that fit easily within the perimeters of the reel. It is also compact and allows a wide range of tensioners to be used for installation and is developed to withstand high pressure and ultra deep waters (up to 15,000 psi and 10,000 feet). SUTA-FLEX is supplied with field proven Nexans Electrical Field Installable Termination Assembly (FITA) and Fiber Optic Termination Unit (FOTU).
The use of a single supplier for the design, manufacture and assembly of subsea projects offers improved project execution. The SUTA-FLEX system is based on standardized components, which are assembled in accordance with the project’s specific needs.
The modular design gives customers full flexibility with regards to its constituent components. SUTA-FLEX is able to accommodate hydraulic, electrical or fiber optic components - or any combination of the three – within its compact outer dimensions. The design contributes to significantly improved reel packing as well as smoother handling and lifting operations.
The design is based on field proven components. Its optimized weight and size allows the termination system to work with a wide range of offshore installation vessel tensioners. A greater range of installation vessels may therefore be utilized.
