A VEEM Marine Gyrostabilizer is a roll damping device that produces the same roll damping torque when the vessel is underway in rough water, in smooth water, or at rest. So, the gyro is performing the same task, regardless of the operation of the vessel. This is similar to zero speed roll fins. However, there are some substantial differences between the two systems. A VEEM Marine Gyrostabilizer is a single piece of equipment, or can be multiple pieces of equipment, if you choose. It is located in the engine room. It is extremely easy to integrate into the vessel because it is in one location. There are no auxiliary systems that need to be run through the vessel and the whole piece of equipment can be mounted in the engine room, which benefits from the lagging that is contained in the engine room. A gyrostabiliser has no hull protrusions, meaning there are no moving parts outside the hull. This is a major advantage when you are drifting or anchored up and you have swimmers in the water. There are no moving parts outside the hull, so there’s no chance of any danger to any swimmers. A VEEM Marine Gyrostabilizer produces no drag because there is nothing in the water. There is a substantial advantage when you are underway because increasing speed does not increase your drag.
