About Stelar

Stelar is backed by a team that combines two main areas of expertise: advanced technology development and asset durability. This team develops a digital platform to optimize the management and performance of industrial assets. It allows asset managers to make informed, rapid and documented decisions based on high-value data.  

The technological product is a positive contribution to the preservation of the environment and the well-being of communities. The Stelar team believes in the mission to help future generations, to act more proactively and to stop repeating the mistakes of the past. Stelar is thus both the collective memory of an organization as well as a powerful decision support tool.
Durability driven
by innovation
and collective

Stelar is powered by world-class experts

To strengthen its position and global recognition in asset durability, Norda Stelo—an independent engineering consulting firm founded in 1963 and 100% Canadien-owned—created the Norda Stelo Solutions division. This division develops and markets technological products to support the company's vision: Mobilizing our collective intelligence towards the sustainability of our partners’ assets, our communities and the planet.
