/ THE LATEST IN STABILIZATION TECHNOLOGY
Increase operating days, Enhance deck safety & speed, Minimise sea sickness
Wave motion is one of the few external forces which has the capacity to negatively impact the operating envelope and profits for offshore boats, regardless of the size of vessel. What’s more, even the most sheltered harbours can suffer unpleasant wave induced motion, that can reduce crew performance, deck safety and increase the time it takes to perform essential tasks. A VEEM Gyro installation can significantly increase the operational availability of these vessels, maximize working revenue, improve
scheduling certainty, and increase crew endurance, performance and comfort After years of research and development we are delighted to be able to offer our customers the opportunity to join the stabilization revolution that is the VEEM Gyro. Reflecting our unwavering passion for beautiful design and representing a combination of both engineering and manufacturing excellence, the new range offers a genuine revolution in performance compared to existing stabilization systems.
Enhance deck safety & security
A VEEM Gyro will significantly improve deck safety and speed by removing the vessel’s rolling motion while underway or at anchor. Less motion will reduce crew sea sickness, reduce fatigue and improve efficiency. Further benefits of a more stable vessel are: increasing crane operating envelopes, maximizing weapons accuracy and achieving safer tender launching and docking alongside fixed and floating facilities.
Increase operating days
When profits, project completion dates and construction quality are at the mercy of weather patterns and wave motion, a VEEM Gyro will work to significantly reduce and eliminate downtime due to uncontrollable vessel rolling. This results in increased operating days throughout the year. For Ferries and other passenger vessels – this means more trips and more passengers. For offshore vessels this means continued operation and more effective crew operation.
Minimize sea sickness
By eliminating wave induced rolling motion that causes sea sickness, the VEEM gyro ensures crew members, troops and passengers are comfortable, experience less fatigue, are safer on board and perform more efficiently and effectively both on board and after lea ving the vessel.
Due to the very nature of their operation, pilot boats and tugs spend much of their life operating across the swell and wave motion or within the wake field of large ships. Transfer of pilots is a dangerous but necessary operation performed in most weather conditions. The ability to significantly reduce the roll of these vessels will significantly improve safety and speed of operations. Being able to stay on target for tugs lowers costs of repair to shipping hulls due to damage.
