Title (EN) OFFSHORE LOADING SYSTEM BY SUSPENDED PIPING
(FR) SYSTEME DE CHARGEMENT OFFSHORE PAR TUYAUTERIE SUSPENDUE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention concerns an assembly for transferring fluid (13) between a first site and a second site, comprising: a winch (40) for the first site (10) whereon is wound a suspension cable (17) designed to be stretched between the two sites (10, 11) and which is adapted to subject the cable to constant tension; a support (14) for the first site and for storing in suspension rigid pipe sections (15) mutually articulated via articulating sections (16) with rotary bends and joints, so as to shift from a storage position wherein the pipe sections (15) are suspended accordion-like to the support (14) to a stretched position between the two sites (10, 11) by being suspended to the cable; and means for coupling (22) some of the articulating sections (16) to the support (14) or to the cable (17) depending on the length of the cable stretched between the two sites (10, 11).
(FR) L'invention propose un ensemble de transfert de fluide (13) entre un premier emplacement et un second emplacement, comportant: un treuil (40) pour le premier emplacement (10), sur lequel est enroulé un câble de suspension (17) destiné à être tendu entre les deux emplacements (10, 11) et qui est adapté à soumettre le câble à une tension constante; un support (14) pour le premier emplacement et pour stocker en suspension des tronçons rigides (15) de conduite articulés entre eux par l'intermédiaire de tronçons d'articulation (16) à coudes et joints tournants, de manière à pouvoir passer d'une position de stockage dans laquelle les tronçons de conduite (15) sont suspendus en accordéon au support (14) à une position déployée entre les deux emplacements (10, 11) par suspension au câble; et des moyens d'attelage (22) de certains des tronçons d'articulation (16) au support (14) ou au câble (17) en fonction de la longueur de câble (17) tendu entre les deux emplacements (10, 11).
