The following shipboard functions all had noise reductions due to the suppressors:
  • deck crane
  • special remote vehicle cranes
  • winches
  • steering
  • anchor windlass
  • bow thrusters

This vessel uses 16 Suppressors on every shipboard hydraulic function to reduce noise.

The hydraulic pump room has twelve different pumps in it.

Some of the pumps are 5,000 psi operating at 1800 RPM.

The pump room is a small all metal room and it radiated noise throughout the entire vessel

The suppressors helped solve this problem.
