Since 2018, the ITS Nawasena Team has never been absent to maintain the championship title at this prestigious world event. This year’s competition was participated by 23 teams from abroad, such as Hochschule Bremen, Universität Rostock, Newcastle University, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, Technische Universiteit Delft, National University of Singapore, University of British Columbia, the University of the State of Amazonas, Singapore Institute of Technology, and Indian Maritime University.

This Marine Engineering student explained that the ITS Nawasena Team, with its MV Lanterna, brought the idea of ​​a Ro-Pax ferry in the competition. Namely, ferries with high safety standards with intelligent control systems are integrated with navigation sensors to pass through the narrow waters of the Amazon River.

Furthermore, according to Yohanes, with a hybrid-electric power system that integrates a generator, solar panels, and batteries that supply the azimuth propulsor, the MV Lanterna Ship can reduce fuel consumption by 25.8 percent. “To prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus, the ITS Nawasena Team has prepared a flexible ship accommodation room layout to be changed and a HEPA Filter in the air system design,” he added.

The team believes that the ship’s design is very concerned with passenger safety, health, and security and paying attention to environmental factors with renewable energy technology and energy efficiency. “Our ship is also designed with the prospect of a profitable investment return and affordable components so that this ship design has business feasibility and is ready to be used in various locations in the world and Indonesia,” said Bima Surya, one of the team members from the Double Degree Marine program. Engineering Hochschule Wismar Germany.

In the future, Yohanes hopes that the ITS Nawasena Team will continue to maintain its championship title in future competitions. This year, the ITS Nawasena Team will also compete again in the National Unmanned Fast Boat Contest competition organized by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology (Kemendikbud Ristek). “We hope that the ITS Nawasena Team can bring home the champion in the event,” said Yohanes hopefully.
