Nauti-Craft to Present Its Marine Suspension System at Seawork (VIDEO)

Nauti-Craft will début its latest prototype vessel 2Play at Seawork 2014 on berth V38. The vessel is a first-of-its-kind 8 meter catamaran.

At its core is the Nauti-Craft marine suspension system combined with the unique Deck Attitude Control System (D.A.C.S), which actively adjusts and maintains the vertical attitude of the deck to facilitate crew access and transfers in rough seas. Together, these technologies provide improved levels of ride comfort, control and stability, both when stationary and at speed.

Nauti-Craft Suspension Systems represent a major breakthrough in the marine industry. The technology enables a significant departure from conventional naval architecture principles.

The innovative system separates the vessel’s hulls from the deck and superstructure via a ‘passive reactive‘ interlinked hydraulic suspension system. The hulls react and conform to the ocean surface, leaving the deck and superstructure with improved stability, a more level attitude, better ride and increased comfort.

Nauti-Craft’s marine suspension is one of the 13 concepts selected from a field of over 450 international entrants in the Carbon Trust’s Offshore Wind Accelerator competition.

Benj Sykes, Director of Innovation at the Carbon Trust, said: “We’ve trawled the globe looking for revolutionary new ideas that can transfer engineers safely in the huge swells around the UK’s coasts. People have been building boats for thousands of years, but we’ve seen some truly radical departures from what you would think a boat should look like. These designs could significantly improve the economics of offshore wind and keep our engineers safe far out to sea. Our analysis shows offshore wind is a huge green growth opportunity which could create up to 230,000 jobs in the UK by 2050.”
