Home » Projects » Motion and Heave compensation systems

At Draftec we are specialized in high-end hydraulic systems in various sectors. Draftec develops and manufactures active and passive heave systems and other motion compensated rotary and translated equipment. With or without servo-electric and hydraulic systems and accumulated or stored energy in a separate medium. A team of inhouse engineers develop high-end pieces of equipment with advanced controls for synchronization of position speed and velocity, witch constant tension and force controls, load sharing, and motion and heave compensation. All control systems are designed from an ecological mindset to optimize efficiency of the system at the highest rate.

This technology is used on winches, lifting appliance and other cable handling equipment to reduce the impact of waves on offshore activities. The control systems compensates any movement and keeps your load motionless. Use our active or passive heave compensation and make it possible to perform operations offshore.

The possibilities of active heave compensation

We provide both active and passive heave compensation. A heave compensation system compensates for the vertical movement of the ship in relation to fixed objects. This makes it possible to work longer at sea, even when the waves are higher. Both passive and active heave compensation are applied in offshore cranes. These systems are also used in our offshore cable laying systems.

Draftec develops and manufactures active and passive heave systems and other position or motion compensated equipment. With or without servo-electric and hydraulic systems and accumulated or stored energy in a separate medium.

Keep your load steady

With a high-quality active heave compensation from Draftec you compensate wave movement and keep your load steady during offshore operations. We supply complete systems – from the design to the end product. Besides that, we strive for fast delivery and fully satisfied customers.
