Subsea Termination Interface
Mechanism that forms the transition between the umbilical and the subsea termination. NOTE The interface is comprised typically of an umbilical armour termination and/or a mechanical anchoring device for the tubes, bend stiffener/limiter, and tube or hose-end fittings. If the umbilical contains electric cables/fibre optics, then penetrator(s) and/or connectors may also be incorporated.
