Created in 2011 by Romain Lanos, Ph.D in physics and naval architect, Streamline is offering services of yacht design and engineering and assists yacht designers, engineers, racing teams and sailors along the design and optimization process of their yacht.
From its creation, Streamline has been collaborating with prestigious actors of the yacht racing world enforcing innovative solutions and assisting them in their constant quest for performance.
Beyond the yacht racing field, Streamline offers its competences and tools to every project looking for performance in an innovative way. As Research and Development represent a major part of its DNA, Streamline has built strong relationship with majors academic partners and its expertise has been officially recognized by the French government through the labels Jeune Entreprise Innovante and Crédit Impot Recherche. Since 2018, STREAMLINE is one of the start-up included in the Incubator of the Alliance Centrale-Audencia-ENSAN

Patrick PLOE, Head of R&D, since 2013
STUDIES : EMSHIP- Advanced Ship Design, DPEA Naval – ENSA Nantes, PhD – Ecole Centrale de Nantes
EXPERIENCE : In 2005, Patrick PLOE obtained a master’s degree in physics and materials engineering during which he specialized in the field of composite materials. With this diploma, he worked for several years for shipbuilding projects as a process engineer. In 2009, he joined the DPEA Naval Architecture of The Nantes School of Architecture (ENSA – Nantes). He completed this training with a European Master « Advanced Ship Design » which lead him to deepen his understanding of ships in the universities of Liège and Genoa as well as at the Ecole Centrale de Nantes.
After having worked for various construction projects in the naval and aeronautical fields, he joined STREAMLINE in 2013 to carry out a thesis on the hydrodynamic optimization of hydrofoil geometries in collaboration with the Ecole Centrale de Nantes.
Within the team, he is in charge of the management of R & D projects and participates in the development of digital tools.
Antoine CONNAN, R&D and Project Engineer, since 2018
STUDIES : Engineer, Ecole Centrale de Nantes
EXPERIENCE : After completing an engineering degree at the Ecole Centrale de Nantes, where he specialized in structural mechanics and hydrodynamics, Antoine CONNAN joined STREAMLINE in 2018.
With his experience in R & D acquired from teams of design offices GSEA Design and STRUCTeam Ltd during his gap year, he worked on the development of STREAMLINE tools and is in charge of the SailDATA project.
In parallel with his engineering career, he keeps an intensive sailing practice and participates in national and international competitions.
Brendan CROIZER, R&D and Project Engineer, since 2015
STUDIES : DPEA Naval – ENSA Nantes, Engineer Ecole Centrale de Nantes
EXPERIENCE : After a degree in physics and mechanics followed at the Université de Bretagne and the Ecole Centrale de Nantes, Brendan CROIZER joined in 2014 the DPEA Naval Architecture of The Nantes School of Architecture to specialize in the Naval sector. At the end of this training, he joined STREAMLINE in 2015 and participates in the Groupama-C and TEAM FRANCE projects within the design office of Franck CAMMAS’ team.
As specialist in numerical methods, he is involved in most of STREAMLINE’s R & D projects. In the context of studies conducted for clients, he is mainly involved in the production of data using FoilWIZARD tools and participates in the implementation of VPP tools for predicting performance.
Marion DAMERS, Communication Manager, since 2018
