Key features and preliminary operations of the reel barge Martech Enterprise designed for offshore deepwater pipelaying are highlighted. Two pieces of equipment differentiate the Enterprise from other lay barges: its vertical reel and a special pipe-straightening apparatus. These patented devices are mobile with respect to the barge deck and each other, and offer maximum flexibility for handling various pipe sizes, wall thicknesses, water depths, and sea conditions, including foul weather during winter months.
