The History



A few students of Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember were dreaming about building a boat that can connect small islands in Indonesia, an eco-friendly energy powered boat, a sustainable and reliable transportation. This idea then continues to be discussed and developed.



After years past, by the end of 2012, these passionate students decided to officially form a research team. Consisted of second and first year students, they optimist to join DONG Energy Solar Challenge in 2014. They spent 2 years to develop and build the very first boat, Jalapatih I that later became the one and only participant from South East Asia in DONG Energy Solar Challenge 2014.



In 2014, after recruiting newcomer students, the second generation team was formed. A great leap in boat development and innovation occurs. The second boat, Jalapatih II was designed to have a semi- trimaran hull and use fiber carbon as the main composite material. Jalapatih II performance had been tested in Dutch Solar Challenge in 2016.



The third team formed in the beginning of 2016 after following several selections. There are a lot of evaluation from the former team, then new goals were set. So as the third generation ever since, the team are ready to do more improvement and now they are working on it.
