The VG120SD, now even more powerful than the original VG120 gyro, has also been confirmed as half as loud.
An acoustic consulting firm carried out a sound level survey on the new VG120SD gyro this week and confirmed that the VG120SD emits a maximum of only 57dBA of sound as compared to 66dBA on its less powerful predecessor. And as a sound increase of 10dB is generally understood as being heard by humans as ‘twice as loud’, the VG120SD is nearly half as loud as the original VG120 but with 30% more power!
For a sound comparison – 57dB is somewhere in between the sound of a refrigerator and cars at a light traffic, a significant decrease and perfect for quiet nights onboard a luxury superyahct.
This is a significant achievement by the VEEM Engineering team as noise is a significant factor when it comes to selecting the right equipment for a vessel.
