Study and construction of an underwater pipe layer movement system for pipes of diameter 3000 mm.
The system is composed of a hydraulic unit with its power and control panel as a single unit located an a floating crane, as well as sensors and hysraulic cylinders for the movement of the pipe layer.
These movements are:
-The vertical synchro movement of all four supporting legs of the Horse to control the vertical position as well as individually for any of the four legs in order to achieve accurate positioning of the horse and the pipe.
-The ambi-lateral movement of the already placed pipe for the accurate placing on the desired lines.
-The axial movement of the already placed pipe for the insertion of the spool into the coupling of the previously placed spool.
