Actuators
Features Matn's hydraulically driven yacht stabilizer system consists of the following components: - tank for hydraulic oil - hydraulic pump driven by the main engines or separately by an electric motor cooler - proportional valves - actuators with hydraulic drive and sensor feedback of the fin position - fins - computer with built in movement sensors - touch screen panel to operate the system - The tank, pump and cooler can be integrated in the hydraulic system of the ship but MATN’S can also provide those components separately, assembled in a power pack. Fins The fins are made from grade A steel and have a NACA0012 profile. They are protected from corrosion by a 3 layer epoxy paint system. Other materials (carbon composite for example) are possible for the production of the fins.Our standard systems are developed for different sizes of ships and we have a range of stabilizers with a shaft diameter from 60mm to 220mm.
The systems are easy to install and can be mounted on steel, aluminium, wood and GRP hulls.

Tailor-made
Separate from the standard range, we make tailor-made solutions for every kind of ship, for example with four fins or electronics integrated in your ship’s system.

The choice of the fin size is determined by a calculation using the following parameters:
  • length of the ship
  • beam of the ship
  • draught of the ship
  • top speed
  • stabilisation design speed
  • metacentric height (GM)
  • displacement
