Ingeship Fall Pipe Control System
A Fallpipe Vessel (PFV) is a seagoing self-propelled vessel with a fall pipe, designed to be lowered underneath the vessel. At the lower end of the fallpipe a ROV is installed. By a dynamically positioning system, the vessel can stay in exact position or be guided along a predefined track in order to place rocks in the seabed in a proper way. This rock dumping method is typically used in deep water, up to 2000 meters.
