Campus ITS, ITS News – The collaborative project to make the Red and White electric bus between the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) and PT INKA will soon be completed. To conduct a production review, the ITS Chancellor and his staff made a direct working visit to PT INKA in Madiun Tuesday (13/9).

ITS Chancellor Prof. Dr. Ir Mochamad Ashari MEng IPU AEng said this visit was a follow-up to PT INKA’s visit to ITS last week. PT INKA visited to ask ITS for assistance in lending tools to help the robot welding process. “That is to do welding on the bus battery,” explained the number one person at ITS.

In response to this, the President Director of PT INKA, Ir Budi Noviantoro, explained that the production of the Red and White buses that will be used at the G20 Summit in Bali had reached 70 percent. He said the interior installation of the bus was still being carried out while waiting for the arrival of all the engine components and the bus battery. “The estimate will arrive next week, and we will immediately assemble it,” he said.

In addition to conducting a direct review of the production of the Red and White electric bus, the visit of the ITS Chancellor and his staff was followed by a discussion about future cooperation opportunities with PT INKA. This discussion is also a follow-up to the previous memorandum of understanding.

Budi explained that his party offered cooperation to build green tourism in Sarangan Lake, Magetan. The project requires support from ITS to prepare an electric boat to be operated at the water tourism spot. “Of course, this will form a sustainable collaboration between PT INKA and ITS,” he said.
