Ship heeling (listing) is when a vessel tilts (to portside or starboard) and doesn’t return back to its upright position. Listing could be caused by rough seas, strong winds, hard or sudden turns, uneven loading/unloading (on cargo ships). The anti-heeling system automatically detects ship's angle and compensates the list, allowing the ship to continue navigation (or loading/unloading operations) without stopping for list correction. The system is integrated with the ballast water tanks, which are inter-connected to each other via pipes, automatic valves and computerized control system.

When the ship lists, heeling sensors send to the master control panel signals for changing the angle. This change is compensated by automatic transfer of the balast water from the heeled to the other side, thus making the ship upright. Ballast tanks have water level control switches which are also integrated in the anti-heeling system. Their function is to avoid low water levels or over filling the tanks. Titanic 2 ship has an anti-heeling system based on water pumps. It consists of electrical motor driven pumps connected with remote controlled valves that direct water flow between ballast tanks.
