Steller Systems will be presenting at the 14th International Naval Engineering Conference and Exhibition (INEC) in Glasgow on Wednesday 3rd October 2018. Steller Systems’ Naval Architect George Payne will be presenting alongside MOD Graduate James Wright, who earlier this year conducted a six-month placement at Steller Systems. Their joint paper, The High-Capacity Expanding Lifeboat HiCEL – Meeting the Modern Search & Rescue Challenge, presents a concept for an innovative, high-capacity lifeboat capable of accommodating up to 500 people. Despite its capacity, the design fits within the space envelope of conventional lifeboats, and so can be launched and retrieved using existing lifeboat davits on a wide range of vessels. This is a design that has been developed to meet the challenges of the migrant crisis in the Mediterranean in a pragmatic and cost-effective manner.
The conference, which is organised by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST), takes place from the 2nd to the 4th October 2018 in Glasgow, UK. Steller Systems will also be exhibiting at the conference, so please come along and meet members of the team.
