Richard Whelan is a logistics guru keen to use his skills to help get SeaVax in the water, formerly with the RAF. 


BMS will be providing design and fabrication support to the Cleaner Oceans Foundation on a not for profit basis for the duration of any European funded programme, or any sponsor association, with Chris helping during these phases of the project.





Richard became involved at a very early stage helping to find suppliers and negotiate prices in preparation for funding bids and production of the the SeaVax prototype.


In 2016 Avaaz offered to help raise funds to take the concept further and that led to a Horizon 2020 application - and is likely to lead to other drives to raise additional funds.


In 2016 Richard helped the team constructed a robot lab and water test tank and built a model of the launch vehicle named AmphiMax, since it will be the world's largest amphibious vehicle when completed.


Currently the project is negotiating for a launch site, with agents instructed to pursue recently identified venues.




Success is the product of international research collaboration and  great project management





WHAT FUTURE OUR OCEANS? - The versatility of SeaVax™ is enhanced using a modular approach that helps us to develop these ocean going machines into an economic tool for the long-term prosperity of all fishing nations in the drive for a truly sustainable, circular economy.
