The technical field

The invention relates to shipbuilding, in particular to the ship's cranes, and can be used for handling operations afloat.

The level of technology

Known mooring handling system for containers containing a quay crane with cantilever spans and cargo trolley, gantry crane with cantilever spans and cargo truck [1] (document "A" No. 95116047, CL B65G 67/60, publication 27.08.1997,). The disadvantages of this system include low system performance under overload from vessel to vessel, for example from sea to river, and the need to use square pier.

Possible variants of the parallel arrangement of placesthe and their connection additional connection elements placed under water and/or over the water. Possible equipment floating crane with a lifting device in the form of the boom, gantry or overhead travelling crane with consoles.

Possible equipment floating crane ene the power installation and propulsion the ballast system, and spuds piles.

As placesthe you can use discarded hull of the submarine.

Possible embodiments of the collapsible joints and articulated with the possibility of turning up to the junction of the sides of placesthe.

FIELD: transportation.

SUBSTANCE: invention is intended for using during lifting sunken wrecks and other loads from beds of water bodies and for transportation of these loads in suspended state to destination point. Floating crane contains hoisting mechanisms with lifting arms, winches and grab hooks. There are two pontoons and hydraulic station with hydraulic cylinders for crane state changing and control system of hydraulic cylinders. Pontoons are pivotally interconnected by arms of hoisting mechanisms. Control system allows changing relative position of pontoons to provide transport or operating state of the crane. In transport state pontoons are at minimal distance from each other and rigidly interconnected. In operating state pontoons are moved apart by hydraulic cylinders and held by couplings and hydraulic cylinders in position corresponding to mutually perpendicular orientation of components of hoisting mechanisms arms. Suggested crane design provides simplified transition from transport state in operating state and vice versa.

EFFECT: increase in effectiveness of floating crane utilisation with reducing energy consumption for its transportation to the place of sunken wreck lifting and back and providing possibility to store the crane in wet docks when occupied space is limited.

SUBSTANCE: invention relates to the method of unloading polystyrene from the ship bulk holds prior to repair or utilisation works. The said method includes cutting out openings in the ship upper and lower bulk heads, placing a pan in the lower cut-out opening to pour loose polystyrene in, crushing the sintered polystyrene and removing it through the lower provisional opening. The sintered polystyrene is crushed by mechanical means. For this, a rotary long lance is moved through the upper provisional opening inside the bulk head and a nozzle of vacuum unit hose is fitted in the lower provisional opening. Polystyrene is sacked into one of the vacuum unit sacks to be changed over on filling, the filled up sack being replaced with a new one. Note that humidified air is forced through the upper provisional opening to prevent polystyrene granule electrisation and to blow the granules off the bulk head surfaces. Polystyrene stuck to the ship inner surfaces and that poured into the aforesaid pan is gathered by the said vacuum unit.

EFFECT: dry high-efficiency continuous unloading of polystyrene from the submarine ballast tanks ruling out its scattering on over the slip.

SUBSTANCE: device to load loose cargoes into the ship holds incorporates a trestle with columns (7), loading chute (8) to receive loose cargo from the pneumowheel transport dump vehicle arranged to move all along the loading site width and hinged to rectangular flat frame (13) coupled with the said chute by power cylinders. The loading chute motion mechanism is formed by an infinite flexible element enclosing, by means of a drive and tension units, the trestle columns with a clearance and clamped on the said rectangular flat frame by grips (25). The aforesaid rectangular flat frame is furnished, in its top, with vertical rollers (18) and, at its bottom, horizontal rollers (20) interacting with guides (19) and (21) fixed at the trestle columns, respectively. The said frame incorporates a light device to locate the loading chute position within the limits of the loading site. The position of the flexible elements grips is selected from the expression W1l1=W2l2, where W1 W2 is the resistance to motion on the guides of the upper and lower rollers, respectively, caused by weight loads from the frame and the chute, l1, l2 are distances from the grips to the upper and lower rollers, respectively.

FIELD: transportation of disabled nuclear submarines on watercraft.

SUBSTANCE: proposed method includes reception-embarkation of submarine on watercraft which consists of two floating transport groups; each transport group consists of two pontoons which are made from hulls of three-compartment modules of submarines which were recovered previously; these hulls are interconnected by means of cargo davits; then, disabled submarine is transferred to recovery point where it is debarked. For embarkation of disabled submarine on watercraft, both transport groups are slightly submerged by means of ballast system and cargo davits with keel blocks of transport groups are brought under the submarine, after which transport groups are slightly raised with the aid of ballast system to bring the cargo davits in contact with submarine hull, thus placing her on keel blocks of both transport groups of watercraft. Then, submarine is secured to hulls of three-compartment modules. For debarkation, the procedure is reversed.

EFFECT: enhanced safety of transportation and low cost of process.
