Steller Systems is proud to once again support the Southampton HYDRO Team in its entry for the HYDROcontest, the international competition in which student teams compete to design, build and pilot the most energy efficient boat.
The team comprises 45 students from the University of Southampton, ranging from undergraduates to PhD students, and representing 15 different nationalities.
The aim of the competition is to design and build one or two highly energy-efficient boats which will compete in two categories: the Mass Transport category in which each vessel must hold 200kg of ballast, and the Private Boats category in which a 20kg ballast will be loaded. This will test the students’ knowledge of naval architecture, small craft performance design, electronics, mechanics and project management.
The contest culminates in teams from around the world facing off on Lake Geneva in Lausanne, Switzerland on 24th – 31st July 2015. We wish the team the best of luck!
