Abstract
(EN)
A floatable structure (10, 12) such as a jack-up barge has a plurality of legs (14) upon which the structure may be supported and raised. Each leg is pivotable between an upright operative position and a recumbent storage position and means such as hydraulic rams (22) are provided for producing pivoting of said legs between said positions. Each leg may be carried by a jacking collar (16) with respect to which the leg is jackable to extend the leg when in the operative position, each jacking collar being pivotable by said rams to carry the respective leg between said operative and storage positions.
(FR)
Une structure flottante (10, 12) telle qu'une barge autoélévatrice comporte une multiplicité de pieds (14) sur lesquels la structure peut être soutenue et soulevée. Chaque pied peut pivoter entre une position verticale de fonctionnement et une position allongée de rangement, et des moyens tels que des béliers hydrauliques (22) sont prévus pour effectuer le pivotement desdits pieds entre lesdites positions. Chaque pied peut être soutenu par un collier de levage (16) par rapport auquel le pied peut être soulevé par vérin afin de s'étendre vers la position de fonctionnement, chaque collier de levage pouvant être pivoté par lesdites béliers afin de déplacer le pied respectif entre lesdites positions de fonctionnement et de rangement.
