MODERN LAY BARGE ADVANCES MEET DEMANDS OF DEEPER, ROUGHER WATER

Recent advances in lay-barge technology are surveyed, showing a gathering momentum of progress, with the benefits achieved by third-generation vessels still to be fully appreciated.

These concern vessel stability, pipe transfer systems, pipe storage capacity, pipe makeup, welding, and tensioning.
