TUTU (Topside Umbilical Termination Unit)

Frames Topside Umbilical Termination Units provide a reliable and robust interface between the main umbilical and the topside utility equipment on a platform, floater or a FPSO. The units can be used for hydraulic fluids such as water-glycol or mineral oil, electric signals, fiber-optic communication, but also for a wide range of chemical fluids.

About our Topside Umbilical Termination Units

A Topside Umbilical Termination Unit (TUTU) will typically be connected to a subsea HPU, a production HPU, and/or a chemical injection unit. The TUTU lines will be sized for the applicable fluid and pressure levels, flow requirements, and compatibility with the process fluid. The lines can be designed with inlet and/or outlet pressure monitoring by means of a pressure gauge, pressure switch, or a pressure transmitter.
A typical Frames Topside Umbilical Termination Unit comprises isolation valves, pressure gauges and junction boxes for power, signal, and fiber-optic communication. Moreover, the units can be supplied complete with piping, tubing, fittings and instruments in various materials, sizes and pressure classes.
