Swedish stabiliser manufacturer and long-time Seawork International exhibitor Humphree announced the delivery of a complete set up of Humphree equipment to a Norwegian SWATH (Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull) vessel.

“We have a long history using Humphree equipment in our projects, designed and manufactured to deliver world class quality and reliability. This vessel will be used as a Crew Transfer Vessel for offshore windmills. The owner Odfjell has required a complete Humphree system for highest comfort for their crew,” said Joachim Waglen Hansen, construction manager at OMA Baatbyggeri.

The vessel is equipped with transom mounted interceptors and fin stabilisation based on four fins. The complete system is electrically 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 passengers. The system also reduces fuel consumption to minimise the environmental impact from the vessel’s operation. This waterjet propelled vessel is also assisted with the Humphree interceptor steering that further improves the fuel consumption and the vessel’s durability.
