Polines Electric Vespa Participates in Enlivening the G-20 Series in Bali

The Semarang State Polytechnic (Polines) student team took part in enlivening the G-20 event in Bali. This opportunity was obtained from a long struggle, starting with the PLN ICE 2022 Competition with the theme of converting fuel oil motorbikes to electric motorbikes, with hundreds of participants from various regions and campuses, both public and private.

"The Semarang State Polytechnic team with their Vysatic motorcycle won 2nd place in the competition and Polines was the only polytechnic out of 9 finalists (8 others from universities) who competed for the championship in Jakarta last October 2022," said Ahmad Hamim Su'udy SPd MT, a lecturer at the Polines Mechanical Engineering Department as the supervisor for the Polines Vysatic student team told the press Thursday (3/11/2022).

According to Hamim, this achievement was partly due to the extraordinary support and appreciation from the Polines campus, especially from the Polines Director

Prof Dr Totok Prasetyo BEng (Hons) MT IPU ASEAN.Eng ACPE and all staff who have helped and facilitated the student team a lot.

After the event, the Vysatic Polines team received an invitation from the Jakarta Research and Development Center PLN to participate in the Energy Transition Day (road to G20 Bali) event which was held at Sofitel Nusa Dua Bali 1-2 November 2022.

This activity is a series of G20 activities and the pinnacle of creativity of young people who have worked to address the energy transition from fuel to electric motors. According to Danan (PLN Jakarta Research and Development Center), the participants who received this special invitation consisted of the 5 best teams from the campus class (category), the 4 best teams from the Vocational School class and 1 team from the community class. 

Meanwhile, according to Hamim, the electric conversion motor from Polines Vysatic was a 1979 Super Vespa motorbike converted with a 2KW motor and a 72 Volt 20 Ah lithium battery (Owned by Gesit). The motorbike is equipped with a Keyless feature and GPS Tracking Apps security.

"This special application is integrated with motorbikes so that bicycle owners can see the track record of motorbike users. This motorbike can cover a distance of 40-45 km with a maximum speed of 70 km per hour, charging the battery takes 3 hours, "said Hamim. 

The student team involved in the Vysatic motorcycle team consisted of 4 students majoring in Mechanical Engineering and 2 students majoring in Electrical Engineering.
