Off-shore terminations for cables, umbillicals and ropes

Scorpion Oceanics design many terminations in a variety of materials for submarine cables, umbillicals and ropes. Terminations can incorporate several services where required, including electrical power and signal, optical fibres, mechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic connections.

Materials selected are chosen to suit the application and budget. Typically stainless steel or marine bronze is used extensively for underwater electro/mechanical cables and most terminations also incorporate Polyurethane or Polyethylene overmouldings. Other termination materials are available, including Peek, acetal, nylon and titanium etc.

Moulded bend restrictors and universal joints are often supplied on systems subject to severe handling in harsh environments. Moulded break-outs for use with connectors fitted to cable tails are regularly supplied.

Ropes are generally terminated with eye splices formed from the rope itself and can be reinforced with metal thimbles etc. All terminations can be designed to suit customers particular requirements. Additionally, hydrostatic, tensile and fatigue testing can be undertaken if required.


Scorpion Oceanics Limited is committed to providing quality products and services and is approved by BM TRADA to ISO 9001:2015 for the design, manufacture, supply and repair of cables, connectors, ropes and terminations for the underwater and Nuclear industries.
