BigHead composite panel fasteners support fuel-efficient vehicle competitor

25 Nov 2022

We are delighted to be supporting Team ETA, a team of 25 passionate undergraduate engineering students from Somaiya Vidyavihar University (SVU), Mumbai, India. Team Eta is designing and manufacturing a fuel-efficient prototype vehicle for the annual @Shell Eco-marathon (SEM) international competition, 2023.

bigHead composite panel fasteners are essential in the construction of the ultra light-weight monocoque body a carbon fibre shell. The team currently holds the record from India for the most fuel-efficient prototype vehicle (Internal Combustion Engine) which has a recorded mileage of 268.7 kmpl at Shell Eco-marathon, India 2019 held in Bangalore. The body weight of that vehicle was just 8kg. We are looking forward to seeing the latest prototype.
