Meet the 2018/2019 team

DNV GL FuelFighter’s 2018/2019 team consists of 41 creative, innovative and very motivated students from many different study programs at NTNU Trondheim. We are representing a big variety of ages and nations as well, since there are several exchange students from across the globe. From France to New Zealand. Almost everyone study some sort of engineering, even in the marketing and design teams. So what we all have in common is the interest and belief in technology and its opportunities. This is also reflected in our common goal: to invent the most energy-efficient car the world has ever seen.

DNV GL FuelFighter team is divided in 5 groups or subteams working separately with their subsystems of the car. The groups are:

  • Mechanical
  • Electrical
  • Design
  • Autonomous
  • Marketing

This page contains a short presentation of the different subteams including a team picture, description and team member portraits

It is important to note that even though we work separately with the different tasks, we all build the same car. We spend much time in common meetings where the different teams present what they are doing and how they are thinking. In that way we will always remember that we actually work together on this huge project.


The Mechanical group is focused on the physical building of the car. The group builds and modifies all the parts in it. They  also work closely with the Electrical group to make sure both parts of the car are functioning in sync.

The Electrical group is working mainly on the electrical systems of our car. In addition, they are responsible for the coding language that the mechanical system requires. They are also working with the Mechanical group to make sure the electrical systems in our car is well integrated with the mechanical parts.

This is the first time DNV GL Fuel Fighter has had an autonomous team. They are working with coding and machinelearning to make sure the car will drive safely on the autonomous track.

The Design group is our smallest group, but they are quite important to make sure both this year’s car and the next car we are building is designed in the most energy efficient way possible. They have just started using generative design, which we are all quite excited about!

The Marketing group develops ways to get DNV GL Fuel Fighter’s mission and vision out to the world. The marketing group uses a range of different tools to do this including this webpage, social media sites and more traditional media platforms to get the team’s message across. This group also works in promoting DNV GL Fuel Fighter here at NTNU.
