Proper Testing and R&D Drives Improved Technology

Quantum Marine Stabilizers
Sound & Vibration Testing


Testing was initiated by Quantum’s R&D Department and administered by J&A Enterprises, a sound and vibration consultancy firm. The testing criteria included a Quantum designed, 75 kW HPU with stringent noise and vibration requirements, targeting airborne and structural noise. The results were unprecedented, airborne noise below 75 dB/structural noise below 65 dB.
