GIKI represents Pakistan in Shell Eco Marathon Asia 2015


Shell Eco Marathon (SEM) is an annual competition aimed at achieving energy efficiency in the automobile industry with participation coming from university students throughout the world. The competition allows teams to participate in two mainstream categories: Prototype and Urban, which are further classified by the type of fuel they employ to drive their car with options including hydrogen, CNG, ethanol, battery electric and gasoline. SEM Asia 2015 was held in Manila, Philippines between 25 February and 2 March, and received participation from 132 teams. GIKI was represented by Kazi Sher Ahmed, Talha Khan and Ashaa Naveed as part of the Team HammerHead in the Battery Electric Prototype category. Ali Yousuf, Malik Abbas and Zaire Hasan were also the part of the team. Elucidating the course of the competition, the team manager, Kazi Sher said, “Conversion of the vehicle into a chain drive with a different motor required a different specifications lithium ion battery which could not be arranged by the SEM e-shop.
