Steller Systems has recently completed a major piece of work to provide a new Stability and Survivability Book (SSB) for the Royal Navy Ice Patrol Vessel HMS PROTECTOR in accordance with Naval Authority guidance. The document covers both Special Purpose and Ice Breaking Operations and replaces the three trim and stability manuals currently held onboard. In conducting this work Steller Systems rationalised three complex sets of stability requirements into clear and concise operator guidance suited to the naval operation of the vessel. These and other associated challenges faced in bringing a vessel from commercial to naval operation have recently been presented by Steller Systems at the biannual Surface Ship Naval Architecture Liaison Group meeting (SSNALG).
