Emergency stops made easy

With ABB Ability™ Marine Braking Assistance

Pod-way emergency stops at the click on a button. To relieve the crew of performing emergency stops manually, we have automated the procedure so the crew can keep their attention on the situation ahead.

  • Performs crash stops better than what is possible manually
  • Balances the loads on propulsion system
  • Retains control over steering
  • Lowers risk to the propulsion system
