Are Your Watertight Bulkheads in the Optimal Position?

Tuesday, December 5th, 2023

Steller Systems’ Deep Learning system, HullTune, has helped our customer to find optimum bulkhead positions allowing 13 bulkheads to be reduced to 11 AND improve stability when damaged compared to the original design.
✅ Reduced design complexity
✅ Save on build costs
✅ Improved damage stability
✅ Improved design and build margins
HullTune by Steller Systems can optimise hull geometries for resistance, intact stability, damage stability, structure, signatures and seakeeping, de-risking designs and making them more efficient to build and operate.

Steller Systems Mentioned in Parliament for Providing Work Experience Placements

Thursday, July 13th, 2023

Steller Systems was very pleased (and surprised!) to be mentioned in parliament on Tuesday during a debate on increasing employment and training.

To quote Siobhan Baillie MP: “A constituent told me today that his daughter had an incredible work placement last week at Steller Systems in Nailsworth. It is a naval architecture company, so that is quite cool. She had a brilliant time learning with the staff in a highly specialist area; they did not need to give their time, but they did, and she will no doubt benefit from that for the rest of her career. We need to normalise those opportunities throughout the country.”

Over the years Steller Systems has provided work experience placements and internships to a number of school, college and university students. We recognise the role we all must play in developing the next generation of engineers and showing them how interesting and rewarding a career in naval architecture and marine engineering can be.
