Hi Everyone,

It's Saturday and business as usual :(
Your help will be much appreciated with this term:

Parte del puente de acceso se construirá desde tierra por medio de un equipo que se apoyará en las cepas y estructuras ya instaladas (_método sobrecabeza_), las estructuras de la plataforma, duques de alba, postes de amarre y parte del puente de acceso así como el montaje de las grúas descargadoras de barcos, se construirán desde el mar por medio de dos plataformas marítimas flotantes o del tipo jack-up apoyadas con barcazas (método desde el mar).

TIA, as always!
