Comparative study Motion Reference Units

The offshore industry is continuously improving safety and profitability by increasing operational limits. The use of motion compensated equipment plays an important role in this process. Vessel motions are measured using a Motion Reference Unit (MRU) but knowing what compensation accuracy can be achieved in a real world use-case is close to impossible when you only have spec sheets.

Batenburg JB Systems has tested a number of sensors of different brands, technologies and price levels on a motion platform simulating a 93m long support vessel and a motion compensated knuckle boom crane.
