Poltekpel Barombong was being well known as BPLDP/BP2IP Barombong, is one of the oldest Government school under the Ministry of Transportation and Communication since June 1980, which can produce potential and skilful ratings up to 1,200 in annual basis.

During the graduation ceremony at Poltekpel Banten on July 25th, @equinox.bahari.utama_marine and @poltekpelbarombong had signed an agreement to recruit Indonesian ratings for manned ships of PT. Equinox Bahari Utama. It is a very positive signal for the Indonesian market, especially in Ujung Pandang region that Poltekpel Barombong will facilitate training for the ratings and to give opportunity to sail onboard foreign ship owners under the manning agent of PT. Equinox Bahari Utama. English communication skill is one of the requirement for any ratings to join into this project.

With the same values and mindset, PT. Equinox Bahari Utama and Poltekpel Barombong do belief that this corporation will be beneficial not only for both parties, but also for the Indonesian seafaring community in general.
