ITS Campus, ITS News – Stability must be considered in the loading process on the ship because if an error occurs in setting the loading procedure, it can pose a danger when the boat is sailing. To support this, the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh November (ITS) provided an innovative software grant called iStow to KRI Teluk Bintuni-520, Wednesday (15/12).

It should be noted that iStow, which was designed by a team from ITS, can automatically plan the loading process on ships and prevent mismatches with loading procedures from the applicable International Maritime Organization (IMO) criteria.

Deputy Commander of the Military Sea Crossing Unit (Satlinlamil) II Lieutenant Colonel (Letkol) (P) Supriadi revealed that the arrangement of loading arrangements on sea transportation is something that must be considered so that the cargo does not affect the stability of the ship. “If there is an error in the loading arrangement, it can pose a danger when the ship is sailing,” he explained.

Meanwhile, ITS Vice-Chancellor IV Bambang Pramujati ST MSc Eng Ph.D. said that ITS must develop technology in this country as a technology institution. Therefore, ITS continues to innovate and expand the use of technology, especially those that can benefit the community.

One of them is the use of iStow, which can reduce the possibility of accidents on ships due to cargo. “Through the use of iStow, it can improve safety on ships because of a better arrangement of cargo, so that ships can become more stable,” he said on the sidelines of the grant handover ceremony which took place aboard KRI Teluk Bintuni-520, which was leaning against the Headquarters of the Military Sea Crossing Unit II.

In the same place, the Head of the ITS Marine Transportation Engineering Department and the initiator of iStow, Dr. Ing Ir Setyo Nugroho, revealed, iStow is software that can simplify and reduce negligence factors in the loading process on ships. This software can be operated collaboratively and simultaneously and integrated with other software.

Certified nationally and internationally, iStow has several advantages as software that is the work of the nation’s children. One of them is calculating stability that is precise and without involving human intervention. In addition, iStow is also equipped with visual and audible alarms when safety criteria are violated. “If any IMO regulations are violated, this software will give an alarm to prevent accidents when sailing,” he said.

The lecturer, who is familiarly called Yoyok, hopes that this iStow grant can signify ITS brotherhood and friendship with the TNI-AL. “Hopefully, iStow, which is a sign of love from ITS to the TNI-AL, can provide benefits,” he hoped.

At the iStow grant handover ceremony, Lt. Col. (P) Supriadi also considered this software a positive breakthrough for the TNI-AL, especially for Navy ships. Supriadi also expressed his hopes regarding the use of iStow on other Navy ships. “Hopefully, in the future, this iStow can be applied and provide benefits for all Navy ships,” he said hopefully.
