TE Connectivity’s (TE) SEACON Product Range to be Showcased at Oceanology 2017

12/01/17.

TE Connectivity (TE) will be exhibiting at SEACON booth #A55 at Oceanology 2017 in San Diego, California, USA.  One of the many products being showcased at this ocean technology event is TE’s SEACON 55 dry-mate connector series.  These connectors have been developed for a variety of applications, including remotely operated vehicles (ROV’s), umbilicals, underwater cameras and diver communications.  The SEACON 55 series benefits from a design incorporating features, such as gold plated contacts with contact band interface technology.  The product line also boasts industry standard compatibility and reliable sealing technology.

SEACON is part of TE’s growing portfolio of innovative brands within the marine oil and gas market, which also includes brands such as DEUTSCH and Rochester Cable. These brands will also be featured at the booth. TE will also showcase its SEACON OPTI-CON series of optical hybrid dry-mate connectors, SEA-MATE wet-mate connectors and rubber molded connectors at the show.

‘The Shell Stones Development’ – Custom-Engineered Electrical and Fiber Optic Connectors from TE Connectivity

30/11/16.

shell-article

Royal Dutch Shell’s innovative concept for the Stones FPSO includes a detach­able buoy turret mooring (BTM) that can release production risers and umbili­cals in advance of extreme weather con­ditions and reconnect afterwards. This capability required custom-designed electrical and fiber optic connectors on the umbilicals and turret stab plates that could disengage and reconnect reliably, safely and repeatedly. TE Connectivi­ty’s (TE) SEACON and DEUTSCH com­bined portfolios were able to meet this unique challenge.

TE offers one of the widest range of dry- and wet- mate connectivity solu­tions available in the market and has developed innovative technologies to support FPSO applications such as this since the early 2000’s. For the Stones project, Royal Dutch Shell relied on TE to provide the low voltage and high volt­age electrical connectors and fiber optic connectors for the stab plate inter­section between the FPSO and BTP and used similar low voltage and fiber optic connectors for the BTB moni­toring system.

Demanding Application

The dry-mate EX-Mate LV electrical con­nectors and wet-mate HydraLight fiber optic connectors had to be certified as explosion proof because they would be installed in a Class I, Zone I hazardous location on the vessel. Connectors had to be designed to mate correctly under all possible stab plate misalignment con­ditions. The robust design ensures that the connectors function and maintain their integrity under high load condi­tions while connected to the 180-ton, 3,000m-long umbilical cables. When dis­connected from the FPSO, the BTM will be submerged.

Both the EX-Mate and EX-HydraLight connectors were supplied in super duplex material. Within the HydraLight connector, engineers used a new com­pensation fluid with no flash-point and changed the pressure compensator to withstand higher thermal expansion. A portable oil fill station was developed for connector maintenance, and test connec­tors were designed to verify fiber optic channel performance.

Extensive Testing and Certification

TE worked closely with Royal Dutch Shell and ExVeritas Limited to create a comprehensive connector qualification test program to certify the fiber optic and electrical connectors for use in a Class I hazardous area. TE also qualified two separate Royal Dutch Shell-pro­vided cables and their integration with connector assemblies through extensive physical testing.

TE also supplied SEACON connec­tor/cable assemblies for the top stab plate for installation at the turret suppli­er’s location. TE’s DEUTSCH technicians worked at the umbilical supplier’s facili­ty to install the connectors to the cables using a proprietary moulding process.

Collaboration and Support

At the outset of the project, TE worked with Royal Dutch Shell to create a com­prehensive functional design specifica­tion to capture all engineering require­ments. TE’s SEACON Engineering, R&D, production and supply chain groups sup­ported the project from initiation to final installation. Amidst the technical com­plexities and pioneering requirements, the project was expertly administered. TE’s broad experience across all connec­tivity mediums and technologies serving Marine Oil & Gas applications – includ­ing seven previous FPSO projects — served as a critical asset toward the proj­ect’s success.

Members of the media are invited to visit TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, at booth #366, Hall 3, at Offshore Northern Seas (ONS) 2016 to see TE’s latest in underwater connectivity solutions for oil and gas applications.

As demands for exploration, drilling and production at increasing depths are placed on the industry, underwater mateable connectors have become critical to high-speed communications, production control, pumping systems, riser monitoring systems and permanent reservoir monitoring (PRM) systems.

TE, with its range of SEACON connectors, continues to maintain its position at the cutting edge of subsea connector technology with ongoing investment in innovative solutions and the development of core products. At ONS 2016, TE will display one of its leading products, the Hydralight optical underwater mateable connector series.

Highly suitable for oil and gas exploration and production applications, the Hydralight connector is an eight-channel device that is fully underwater mateable, oil-filled, pressure balanced, qualified to 7,000m and has a design life of up to 30 years. With a minimum of 100 mate/de-mates the Hydralight connector meets the “Optical Wet-Mate Connector Specifications” for Norsk Hydro, Statoil, Elf Exploration, Total, Hess and BP.

SEACON connectors form part of the growing stable of exceptional connection systems and cabling solutions for harsh environments in the TE portfolio, which also includes trusted brands DEUTSCH Offshore, Rochester Wire & Cable and Raychem.
