VG1000

Available in 2018

The VEEM Gyro 1000 will be the most advanced and powerful gyrostabiliser available for large super yachts and smaller commercial workboats. As a single unit installation, it is suitable for vessels with displacement between 300 – 900 tonnes. For super yachts, this is roughly equivalent to 45m and upwards length. Multiple units can be installed for larger vessels.

The VG1000 delivers a massive max rated stabilising torque of 1000kNm. This dwarfs the torque available from its nearest competitor on the market. All maintenance tasks on the VG1000 can be completed whilst the unit remains in place in the vessel, without the need to remove major components. Due to it’s rugged construction and clever software, the VG1000 is able to operate efficiently in small waves, but continue operating as wave environments grow to rough (when you need it most). Installation is simple, saving huge amounts of vessel integration cost.

For vessels with low roll periods >9 seconds, actively driven precession axis control (ADP) is available as an option or as a retro-fit.

Energy Saving

Energy saving mode for quiet night time operation. Automatic power reduction in small waves. Lower fuel burn, higher speeds, and increased range as compared with zero speed fins.

Fast Spin-up and Spin-Down

60 minute spin-up.

20 minute spin-down.

Whisper Quiet

Generating an extremely low 66 dBa (VG120 under low loading conditions), the VEEM Gyros have reset the sound level benchmark for gyro stabilisers.Mounting outside of the engine room is a realistic option.

Web Based Remote Support

All VEEM Gyros are able to be web connected to allow remote phone support, data download and diagnostics. This can be managed at VEEM’s Support Base and/or by the owners team.

Diamond Hard Ruggedness

Continued safe operation as waves become large. Due to rugged construction, high pressure hydraulics, smart self-regulating software to protect against damage without shutting down.

More Speed… Less Fuel

Choosing a VEEM Gyro instead of Zero Speed fins almost always comes with the gift of increased max speed, and reduced fuel burn. The weight of the gyro balanced against the drag of the fins is a net gain for the yacht.
