Managing Director, SEA Electric
Through an extensive career in transport and commercial vehicle distribution, and a passion to make a difference within this sector, Tony identified the approaching opportunity in electrifying the rigid truck segment much sooner than forecast.
Tony’s engineering background, coupled with post-graduate business degrees, lead to the establishment of SEA Electric in 2014 to develop electric driveline technology (known as SEA-Drive). The vision is to exploit the opportunity created by rapidly reducing EV technology/component costs and the application suitability of electric drivelines in trucks and delivery vans in particular.
The official launch of SEA-Drive in early 2017, resulted in a vast range of licensing and 3rd party supply agreements being pursued in many countries and has created a very exciting future for SEA Electric.

Topic or “Chair”: Why Metropolitan Rigid Trucks Should be Electric
Research shows that 95% of rigid trucks, operating in metropolitan areas, perform daily routes of less than 150km per day, and have minimum dwell times (typically overnight) of 8 hours. Tony will outline why this is the ideal fit for 100% electric application and the SEA Electric progress in this market.
