ITS Campus, ITS News – Being a center of excellence in the field of maritime affairs, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) is determined to contribute to meeting Indonesia’s needs in the maritime world. In fulfilling this desire, ITS initiated the inauguration of the first Permanent International Association of Navigation Congresses (PIANC) Indonesia section through the 8th International Conference on Marine Technology (SENTA) 2023 ITS, Thursday (23/11).

One of the ITS representatives for the PIANC Indonesia section, Raja Oloan Saut Gurning ST MSc PhD, said that ITS not only initiated the launch of the PIANC Indonesia section but also became an active collaborator in this global organization. PIANC is known as an institution that guides sustainable water transportation infrastructure in the maritime sector. “Finally, this organization can be presented in Indonesia,” said the lecturer who is usually called Saut.

Furthermore, the lecturer at the ITS Department of Shipping Systems Engineering also explained that this forum, which was founded in 1885, brings together various professionals from all over the world to provide advice and share knowledge related to maritime infrastructure. Starting from ports, shipyards, and shipping lanes, to equipment related to maritime activities. “This organization also continues to be a partner for the government and the private sector,” he added.

Not only at the international level but also for Indonesian domestic maritime affairs. Through this innovative research activity, ITS focuses on developing solutions that are relevant to Indonesia’s specific needs in the maritime world.

Responding to ITS’ participation in the PIANC Indonesia section, Saut hopes that ITS lecturers and students can be involved in contributing. Through this involvement, it is hoped that ITS can follow patterns and cognition regarding world regulations in the maritime sector and improve learning and teaching systems to international standards. Apart from that, ITS can also support maritime development in Indonesia and become a reference for various world maritime programs.

In line with this, the Chief Executive of the 2023 SENTA Conference, Prof. Ir R Sjarief Widjaja PhD FRINA, revealed that the 8th SENTA was the main stage that initiated the presence of various strategic collaborations and important partnerships in maritime affairs.
