Moray® Termination System
Deep Down’s patented Moray Termination System provides for a standardized, rapidly configurable, robust and reliable umbilical termination head (UTH) for the construction of hydraulic flying leads and compliant umbilical terminations. The Moray Termination System is highly configurable and supports any combination of steel tubes, thermoplastic hoses, electrical and optical cables. Additionally, the Moray Termination System is compatible with any commercially available Multi-Quick Connect (MQC) plate interface.
The Moray framework, mechanical strength termination and articulating vertebra bend limiters are designed to withstand up to 10 tons of axial load making the termination system ideal for compliant umbilical terminations, steel tube flying leads, and thermal plastic hose flying leads. For flying lead applications the patent protective over-hose assembly connectively attaches to the bend limiter assembly eliminating hose bunching and splice breakage which leads to tube exposure and kinking. The protective over-hose assembly serves as a secondary strength element and is rated for a 10 ton axial load and can be supplied in lengths in excess of 1000 feet.
Deep Down continues the evolution of the Moray Termination System by offering integrated 250 lb uplift buoyancy module covers. This new addition to the Moray Termination System eliminates rigging and reduces the complexity of lead make up to a single ROV pass at each end of the flying lead. The integrated buoyancy module is designed to accommodate two auxiliary 60′ flying leads with connector parking stands. The buoyancy cover accepts all commercially available optical, electrical, and hot stab interfaces. Integrating communications or auxiliary hydraulic functions into a single flying lead is more cost effective from both a manufacturing and installation standpoint. An ROV simply needs to make a single pass to connect up to three systems at a time as opposed to making three separate passes.
Deep Down has supplied over 200 Moray Termination Systems integrated into compliant umbilical terminations and flying leads for over a decade without a failure.
