Research and development of intelligent operation of roll damping tanks on fishing vessels and offshore support vessels

Objective

The existing anti roll systems fitted to fishing and offshore support vessels are tuned for a particular condition of the vessel and in other conditions of the vessel and in other conditions can be a danger to the vessel. Fishing vessels and offshore support vessels have continually changing stability conditions dependent on catch rates and at sea loading (or discharging) of cargo. The proposed system will monitor the condition of the vessels throughout the voyage and adjust itself accordingly to give a safe and stable working platform as required by Annex 1 of Council Directive 93/103/EC.
