Owing to the size of the machine the transporters designed to do this have to have a very large reach. At the same time, extremely precise positioning is required as access into the vessel is by way of ports of small dimensions, and the vast array of peripherals surrounding it constitute obstacles that must be avoided. The structure of the articulated boom for in-vessel operations and its operation modes are described
