Title (EN) OVERBOARDING QUADRANT
(FR) SECTEUR DE MISE À L'EAU
Abstract:
(EN) An overboarding quadrant (116) for underwater remotely releasing a flexible elongate submersible element (110) positioned thereupon. The overboarding quadrant (116) comprises a support (126) for lifting and lowering a flexible elongate submersible element (110), at least one restraint (150) to hold the flexible elongate submersible element (110) captive, and a restraint control mechanism (156), which is operable remotely. The restraint control mechanism (156) is arranged to move the restraint (150) between a captive condition and a release condition. A system including an overboarding quadrant (116) and a remote controller is also provided.A method of releasing a flexible elongate submersible element (110) from an overboarding quadrant (116). A method of resetting an overboarding quadrant (116) is also provided.
(FR) L'invention concerne un secteur de mise à l'eau (116) qui permet de libérer sous l'eau et à distance un élément submersible, allongé et flexible (110), positionné sur ledit secteur. Le secteur de mise à l'eau (116) comprend un support (126) qui permet de soulever et d'abaisser un élément submersible, allongé et flexible (110), au moins un élément de retenue (150) qui permet de retenir l'élément submersible, allongé et flexible (110), et un mécanisme de commande de retenue (156) qui est actionnable à distance. Le mécanisme de commande de retenue (156) est conçu pour déplacer le dispositif de retenue (150) entre un état retenu et un état de libération. L'invention concerne également un système comprenant un secteur de mise à l'eau (116) et un dispositif de commande à distance. L'invention concerne également un procédé de libération d'un élément submersible, allongé et flexible (110) , par un secteur de mise à l'eau (116). L'invention concerne également un procédé de recalage d'un secteur de mise à l'eau (116).
