When the wind picks up, the vessel remains steady in the sea thanks to the system from Intering GmbH: a U-shaped tank fitted across the stern of the vessel and filled with 250 cubic metres of water. When the SONNE begins to sway, water is pumped from one side of the tank to the other, subduing the rolling motion of the vessel.
