Servowatch has introduced a new 'Trim and Draught Assist' stability optimiser designed specifically to ‘balance the draught’ of SWATH (Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull) vessels.


Wayne Ross, Chief Executive Officer, Servowatch, said: “The need to calculate ship trim and draught is one of the most important measurements operators take to ensure vessel stability and safety. The Servowatch TDA is designed to control a balanced draught for a vessel, providing automatic flow control after manual trim has been set."


“While the system is not a fully automatic dynamic stabilisation system, the system can be reset to automatically recognise the optimum draught and trim required under different operational conditions, such as loading or unloading fuel, supplies and personnel.”


Employing high accuracy hydrostatic level transmitters, concurrent measurement of ballast tank levels and  multi-point draught indication can be achieved. These instruments have an encapsulated stainless steel housing to protection class IP68 and IP69K, this is essential in protecting the measuring cell and electronics from external moisture.
