SWATH crew transfer vessel with full Humphree stabilisation

A complete Humphree equipment set up has been installed on a new Norwegian SWATH vessel.


The vessel is equipped with transom mounted interceptors and fin stabilisation based on four fins. The complete system is electric actuated with the Humphree fast servo units.

The Humphree Active Ride control system, integrating both interceptors and fins in one system, has proved to give a significant motion reduction that improves  safety and comfort onboard for both crew and passenger. The system also reduce fuel consumption which minimise the environmental impact from the vessels operation.

This waterjet propelled vessel is also assisted with the Humphree interceptor steering that further improve the fuel consumption and the vessels durability.
