Exeter woman Amanda Jensen died from severe electrical burns after the generator she was using to power her electric vehicle failed.
“We will never let this happen again, we will never forget, and I hope we can make it up to her,” her father Michael Jensens said.
The 26-year-old was among six people who died when their Tesla EV drove into the Tasmanian bush on Wednesday.
“I don’t want the rest of my family to have to go through this again.
I know that we will be able to make it through this and hopefully be better for the future,” Mr Jensening said.
“Amanda had a really positive outlook on life and a positive outlook of life, so she didn’t seem to care.”
The Tasmanian Power Authority (TPA) said it was not yet clear how the generator failed.
It said in a statement that the TPA was working with Tampines power company and its engineers to understand what happened and “seek to understand the causes of the incident”.
It said the cause of the accident had not yet been determined.
The TPA said it would work with the family to “explore all the possibilities” of what went wrong.
It was not clear whether the family would have to pay compensation.
The Queensland-based company that manufactured the generator, Kinesis Power, said the company was working closely with the power authority.
“This is a tragic incident and we are devastated at what happened,” Kinesi Power CEO Peter Poyntz said.
Mr Poyptz said the incident was the result of a “mistake”.
“We do not believe this incident was caused by a defect, but rather the installation of a faulty generator,” he said.
