DMS delivers 50th stabilization system
Dynamic Marine Systems _ a specialist in taking the rock-and-roll out of moving and anchored yachts, small and large _ says it recently delivered its 50th stabilization system since 2013. “By the time people read this we’ll probably have delivered 60 already,” says DMS’ Patrick Noor.
DMS Holland recently moved into new waterfront complex in the southern city of Den Bosch “to meet explosive growth in demand and accommodate our appetite for innovation,” according to Noor. “In the near future, you’ll see our clients dock at our front door,” he adds. His company markets 2 groundbreaking roll damping systems: the DMS RotorSwing and the AntiRoll.
The former is the first, fully electrically driven, non-hydraulic roll damping system for yachts up to 30m. Rather than traditional fins, it has rapidly rotating cylinders that exert up or downward pressure. The biggest advantage over a fin system is greater roll damping at lower speeds. Fin systems need a substantial speed and in shallow waters, their protruding fins are vulnerable to damage. The RotorSwing has retractable rotors that eliminate the risk of damage, have no effect on steering and, unlike fins, can be placed anywhere on a hull.
For yachts of 30m and up, DMS markets 0the AntiRoll system. Stabilizers are designed to increase onboard comfort both underway and at anchor. But doing that in both conditions can be problematic. The AntiRoll’s dual-axis fin stabilizer rotates and flaps both underway and at ‘zero speed’ with no compromise of performance in either circumstance. Its curved, high-aspect ratio fin cuts drag by up to 75% which improves fuel use. For sailing yachts, there is a retractable AntiRoll system.
