A stabilizer hull unit is the energy transfer device in Quantum’s rotor stabilizer
systems. The hull unit is installed in the turn of the bilge with its main shaft
penetrating through the vessel’s hull to connect to the rotor. The hull unit uses
custom made hydraulic cylinders joined to a rack and pinion to rotate the main shaft,
which swings the rotor in a large arc. Additionally, the rotor spins about its own axis,
via electric motor. The combined swinging and spinning of the rotor result in
hydrodynamic forces due to the Magnus Effect, and serve to stabilize the vessel while
it is at Zero Speed™.
