Spanish term or phrase: Paral
Estas son las estructuras metálicas que se sueldan a una barcaza para evitar que la tubería cargada se mueva durante la navegación. El único que se me ocurre es "support" pero estos no son exactamente soportes de tubería.

La frase no ayuda más de lo que he explicado arriba, sólo dice que se soldarán estos parales.

Any idea anyone?
