Title
(EN) DOCKING ARRANGEMENT
(FR) AGENCEMENT D'ACCOSTAGE
Abstract
(EN)
A semi permanent docking arrangement for a flat bottomed production and storage vessel (17), the arrangement comprising a submersible elongate base slab (11) with a flat upper surface upon which a flat bottomed vessel may be set, and a generally flat lower surface to be grounded on a shallow seabed, in which there is means to stabilize the base slab on the seabed and means to locate the flat bottomed vessel directly or indirectly on the base slab. Advantageously, the slab (11) may have upstanding columns (16) adapted to act as mooring dolphins (18) so that another vessel (e.g. an offtake tanker 19) can be moored alongside and spaced apart from the flat bottomed vessel (17).
(FR)
Cet agencement semi-permanent d'accostage, destiné à un navire de stockage et de production, à fond plat (17), comprend une dalle de base submersible (11), de forme allongée, possédant une surface supérieure plate sur laquelle le navire à fond plat peut reposer, ainsi qu'une surface inférieure généralement plate, destinée à être posée sur un fond marin peu profond ; cette dalle est caractérisée en ce qu'elle comprend des moyens destinés à la stabiliser sur le fond marin et des moyens servant à positionner le navire à fond plat, de manière directe ou indirecte. De manière avantageuse, cette dalle (11) peut comprendre des colonnes verticales (16) conçues pour servir de pieux d'amarrage (18), de façon qu'un autre navire (par exemple un pétrolier de soutirage 19) puisse mouiller le long du navire à fond plat (17) tout en étant espacé de celui-ci.
