Title
(EN) RETRIEVER SYSTEM FOR A MARINE EQUIPMENT AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTÈME DE RÉCUPÉRATION D'UN ÉQUIPEMENT MARIN ET PROCÉDÉ
Abstract
(EN)
A retriever system (1) for retrieving a marine equipment. The retriever system comprises a hollow body (100) having a first opening (111), a cap adapted to close the first opening of the hollow body and adapted to be removed. A buoyancy assembly (2) housed in the hollow body and adapted to exit the hollow body when the cap (18) is removed. A linkage system (19) maintains the buoyancy assembly linked to the hollow body of the retriever system. The buoyancy assembly comprises first inflatable element (3) and a second inflatable element (4), and an inflating system (5) configured to, when activated, inflate the first inflatable element, so as to enable exiting of at least the second inflatable element of the buoyancy assembly out of the hollow body. Said inflating system is configured to start or to continue inflating the second inflatable element when said second inflatable element is out of the hollow body.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système de récupération (1) permettant de récupérer un équipement marin. Le système de récupération comprend un corps creux (100) présentant une première ouverture (111), un capuchon conçu pour fermer la première ouverture du corps creux et conçu pour être retiré. Un ensemble de flottabilité (2) est logé dans le corps creux et conçu pour sortir du corps creux lorsque le capuchon (18) est retiré. Un système de liaison (19) maintient l'ensemble de flottabilité relié au corps creux du système de récupération. L'ensemble de flottabilité comprend un premier élément gonflable (3) et un second élément gonflable (4), et un système de gonflage (5) conçu pour gonfler, lorsqu'il est activé, le premier élément gonflable, de façon à permettre la sortie d'au moins le second élément gonflable de l'ensemble de flottabilité hors du corps creux. Ledit système de gonflage est conçu pour commencer ou pour continuer à gonfler le second élément gonflable lorsque ledit second élément gonflable se trouve à l'extérieur du corps creux.
