Title (EN) MARINE PIPELAYING FRICTION CLAMP DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE SERRAGE À FRICTION DE POSE DE DE TUYAU MARIN
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a marine pipelaying friction clamp device (10; 20) for frictionally retaining an offshore subsea pipeline (30) to be launched into the sea. The clamp device comprises a frame (1; 21) which comprises a main frame structure (2; 22) that is adapted to be supported by the pipelaying vessel. The frame supports multiple annular arrays (3; 23) of clamping units (4) adapted to simultaneously engage separate portions of the pipeline. According to the invention the frame further comprises one or more mobile subframes (11; 31) for one or more of said annular arrays of clamping units. Each of said one or more mobile subframes (11) is movably supported by the main frame structure (2) so as to be mobile relative to said main frame structure in said longitudinal direction of the clamp device, and each of said one or more mobile subframes (11) is supported by a spring assembly (12; 32).
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de serrage à friction de pose de tuyau marin (10; 20) pour retenir par friction une conduite sous-marine au large (30) à lancer dans la mer. Le dispositif de serrage comprend un cadre (1; 21) qui comprend une structure de cadre principale (2; 22) qui est conçue pour être supportée par le navire de pose de tuyau. Le cadre supporte de multiples réseaux annulaires (3; 23) d'unités de serrage (4) conçues pour venir simultanément en prise avec des parties distinctes de la conduite. Selon l'invention, le cadre comprend en outre un ou plusieurs sous-cadres mobiles (11; 31) pour un ou plusieurs desdits réseaux annulaires d'unités de serrage. Chacun desdits un ou plusieurs sous-cadres mobiles (11) est supporté mobile par la structure de cadre principale (2) de manière à être mobile par rapport à ladite structure de cadre principale dans ladite direction longitudinale du dispositif de serrage, et chacune desdits un ou plusieurs sous-cadres mobiles (11) est supporté par un ensemble ressort (12; 32).
