Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention relates to a method for installing a self-supporting tower. According to the method, an anchoring mechanism (32) is provided and installed on said bed, and a float (18) and a tubular pipe (68) are provided. Next, said float (18) and said tubular pipe (68) are submerged, then said float (18) and the tubular pipe (68) are driven towards said bed (12) in order to hitch one of the ends (72) of said tubular pipe to said anchoring mechanism (32), while said float (18) is securely fastened to the other (70) of the ends in order to keep said pipe (68) vertical above said anchoring mechanism (32). According to the invention, said tubular pipe (68) and said float (18) are supplied separately, and the float (18) is kept submerged at a distance away from said anchoring mechanism (32); and said tubular pipe (68) is suspended from said float (18) via said other (70) of said ends.
(FR)Méthode d'installation d'une tour autoportée d'extraction des hydrocarbures L'invention concerne une méthode d'installation d'une tour autoportée. Selon la méthode, on fournit une installation d'ancrage (32) et on installe ladite installation d'ancrage sur ledit fond, et on fournit un flotteur (18) et une conduite tubulaire (68). Ensuite, on immerge ledit flotteur (18) et ladite conduite tubulaire (68), puis on entraîne en mouvement ledit flotteur (18) et la conduite tubulaire (68) vers ledit fond (12) pour accrocher l'une des extrémités de ladite conduite tubulaire (72) à ladite installation d'ancrage (32), tandis que ledit flotteur (18) est solidaire de l'autre des extrémités (70) pour maintenir verticalement ladite conduite (68) à partir de ladite installation d'ancrage (40). Selon l'invention, on fournit séparément ladite conduite tubulaire (68) et ledit flotteur (18), et on maintient le flotteur (18) immergé à distance de ladite installation d'ancrage (32); et, on suspend ladite conduite tubulaire (68) audit flotteur (18) par ladite autre desdites extrémités (70).
