TrustLink Stress Terminations

TrustLink stress terminations represent a range of rugged, safe and reliable solutions for connecting a cable to a towed or profiling system or for handling a heavy piece of cabled underwater equipment or a subsea installation. Terminating and moulding the cable to a connector ensures a watertight connection from the cable to the subsea equipment.

MacArtney holds TrustLink stress terminations in stock for steel or kevlar armoured cables with a broad variety of industry standard diameters.

TrustLink stress terminations are available in either a ‘shackle’ or ‘fork’ termination design. While standard TrustLink stress terminations are available with safe working loads (SWL) ranging from 400 to 14,500 kg, MacArtney also holds extensive experience in designing custom stress termination solutions for loads of up to 100 tons.
