Real-world application of Active Stabilization Tanks in Ships

  1. Aug 2, 2014 #1
    Does anyone know any specific examples of real world application of Active Stabilization Tanks in a ship? I just need a link to an article or just a name of ship IF one exists.

    I have been doing some research into A.S.T's and I am desperate to find out if the concept has been manufactured. I am looking in particular looking for an example of where a ship uses pumps to input energy into a pipe system that moves water across the breadth of a ship to damp the roll in rough seas.

    I have found plenty of examples of passive systems, but I am wondering if active systems would use too much fuel to be efficient.

    Thanks for any help,

    Martin
