Title
(EN) REMOVING CONCRETE STRUCTURES FROM THE SEABED
(FR) ÉLIMINATION DE STRUCTURES EN BÉTON DU FOND MARIN
Abstract
(EN)
A self-propelled underwater vehicle can be driven across the seabed, for example along a subsea pipeline, to self-load and crush subsea material that comprises concrete, particularly concrete mattresses. A container for holding the crushed debris may be removable from the vehicle for recovery of the crushed debris to the surface.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un véhicule sous-marin autopropulsé qui peut se déplacer sur le fond marin, par exemple le long d'un pipeline sous-marin, pour auto-charger et broyer un matériau sous-marin qui comprend du béton, en particulier des matelas en béton. Un contenant destiné à contenir les débris broyés peut être retiré du véhicule pour récupérer les débris broyés à la surface.
