English term or phrase:spar!
Es un tipo de plataforma de extracción de petróleo. Contexto (escaso): "Two of them were adaptive structures: the XXXX adaptive spar and the ZZZZZ-1000"
Lo he encontrado como "plataforma tipo Spar", pero quiero saber si alguien conoce una traducción directa. No me sirven: espato, larguero, viga, palo :-)
Explanation: 1. "Spar" (aquí) no tiene nada que ver con los palos, boyas, vigas, largueros....
2.Spar: A single buoy mooring which includes oil storage capacity so that production can continue even if the weather is too severe for tanker loading. http://www.petroleum.co.uk/dsglos.htm
buoy (aquí) = flotante
3. CSO Aker Maritime, Inc. will be responsible for the engineering, procurement, fabrication and delivery of the complete hulls and mooring systems. The program contract calls for the first SPAR delivery in 2003. The contract arrangement includes options for delivery of additional hulls and mooring systems for BP operated deepwater prospects in the Gulf of Mexico in water depths ranging from 1,220 to 1,830m (4,000 to 6,000 feet). Option for additional SPARs are to be exercised in line with BP's operational requirements. The ``truss'' SPAR platform solutions to be provided are based on CSO Aker Maritime Deepwater Division's (CSO Aker Maritime) licensed SPAR technology. http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/010222/dath027_2.html
SPAR is a registered name for mooring systems. As we are dealing with a patent here I strongly suggest to add "plataforma" and capitalize the word "spar".
