Method for lowering a subsea structure having a substantially flat support base into the water through the splash zone

Procede pour abaisser une structure sous-marine, ayant une base de support sensiblement plate, dans l'eau a travers la zone d'eclaboussement

Abstract

The present invention relates to a method for lowering a subsea structure to be installed on the seabed into the water through the splash zone, said subsea structure comprising subsea equipment arranged on a substantially flat support base for preventing the subsea equipment to sink into the seabed. The method according to the invention comprises: lifting the subsea structure into the air in a horizontal position in which the flat support base extends substantially parallel to the horizontal plane; tilting the subsea structure while suspended in the air from the horizontal position into a tilted position in which the flat support base is angled with respect to the horizontal plane; lowering the subsea structure into the water through the splash zone in the tilted position; and tilting the subsea structure while suspended in the water below the splash zone back into the horizontal position.
