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.
