SEACON has delivered it’s final shipment of its highly successful and field proved HydraLight connectors to FMC Technologies for the first stage of the Ormen Lange field.

This shipment was the last of over 150 connectors supplied for this project and is continuing testament to the success of the HYDRALIGHT connector.

The HYDRALIGHT is a multi channel (up to 8 channel) fully underwater mateable, pressure balanced optical connector, qualified to 7000m, with an average single mode insertion loss of less than 0.3dB and a average single mode back reflection of -50dB. It’s proven reliable design is suitable for these harsh operating environments and meets the following specification;

The field will be tied back to the Kristin platform where the gas and oil will be processed.
