Anti-Heel System

An anti-heel system consists of ballast tanks connected by large-capacity pumps and a control system. The pumps can transfer 16-17m3/min. (or more) between the ballast tanks, allowing for rapid corrections to heel. The control system is automatic, often directly linked to lifting or discharge devices. The function is not to resist natural, seaway induced roll (as in anti-roll tanks).
