Assalamualaikum Wr. Wb.
Praise be to The God Almighty for all His graces and guidance to us.
As one of the best technological university in Indonesia, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember has responsibility to support the Government in resolving national problems, especially in maritime and energy sectors. In correlation with ITS vision and missions to develop the latest innovation in maritime sector, ITS Solar Boat Team, as a part of ITS Research Team, has been taking important role in the development of solar powered boat.
There are two goals that will be achieved in developing this solar powered boat. First,it is as a medium for research inconjunction with our national problem in maritime and energy sectors. Second, this is also to show that Indonesian Students have the same competencies as well as the students from different countries.
The ITS Solar Boat Team has been developing the solar powered boat since 2011. The team had participated in Dong Energy Solar Challenge 2014, Dutch Solar Challenge 2016, Monaco Solar Challenge 2017 and Solar Sport One 2018 in Netherland. It has been quiet while since ITS students made some innovations all of them had achieved appreciations, and therefore ITS students who are in the ITS Solar Boat Team will again present the result of their works to our nation and country.
Only with spirit of togetherness, support and blessing from God all of these programs will become a reality. We do hope that our honorable partners could support this remarkable project and become a part of those who raise Indonesian flag in Netherland this year. Any kind of support by our honorable partners will be very much appreciated by the ITS Solar Boat Team.
