Since its establishment in 2012, @POLIMARIN has its vision to become an international standard Government Maritime Polytechnic who produces human resources with character, competence in the maritime sector, and with global insight that is highly competitive and environmentally wise. In order to implement the vision, POLIMARIN is the only maritime institute in Indonesia who is having a joint degree program with Hochschule Wismar from Germany, for their nautical study program.
PT Equinox Bahari Utama (EBU) was having the opportunity to visit POLIMARIN for the 1st time on December 6th 2021 and to have a fruitful discussion and chat with the lecturers and students. EBU, who was being represented by Angga Luthfi, as the Director, also being given an opportunity to have a discussion with almost 100 apprentices on and offline through a public lecture session. The session was being wrapped up by signing a Memorandum of Agreement (MoU) in between EBU and POLIMARIN to start the cooperation in providing opportunity to POLIMARIN’s apprentices to have their sea projects or apprenticeship onboard vessels manned by EBU.
Both parties are optimistic that this cooperation will become a good opportunity for the Indonesian apprentices to sail onboard foreign flagged ship and to grow the number of Indonesian prospective seafarers in the future.
