Padang Pariaman, W Sumatra (ANTARA) - State-owned pharmaceutical firm PT Bio Farma said there have been no adverse events following immunization (AEFI) in the clinical trials for its locally-made COVID-19 vaccine, named State-Owned Enterprise (SOE) vaccine, so far.

Currently, the SOE vaccine has entered Phase 3 clinical trials.

"No headaches or fever have been found in volunteers, except for pain from the injection, and it usually does not last long," President Director of Bio Farma Honesti Basyir said at a press conference during a visit to a center of the SOE vaccine’s Phase 3 trial here on Tuesday.

Since the end of last year, Bio Farma has been working with a number of parties to carry out clinical trials, and no AEFI case has been detected so far, he informed.

This has demonstrated the capability of the 132-year-old state-owned firm as one of the largest companies in the world in terms of vaccine production. In fact, Bio Farma can meet 70 percent of the global polio vaccine needs and is the only vaccine company in the world to have produced a new type of polio vaccine, Basyir noted.

Even though the SOE vaccine has been audited by the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) and has been declared halal, the company will still wait for the halal certificate to be issued, he said.

After the Phase 3 clinical trial ends and the National Agency of Drug and Food Control (BPOM) grants an emergency-use permit (EUA) at the end of July, the SOE vaccine will be used for booster vaccinations in adults and in the children’s immunization program.

"Because so far, the COVID-19 vaccine for children is still very rare," Basyir added.

He said that although his firm has been considered slow in producing a COVID-19 vaccine compared to other companies in the world, he hoped that the vaccine that Bio Farma produces would target people who have not been vaccinated and who have not received the booster dose.

PT-PAL-UAE-1024x640.jpg


PT PAL signed a contract with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Navy for one Landing Platform Dock (LPD). The contract was one of six agreements signed during the Indonesian president’s visit to the Gulf state on Friday (1 July).

According to Indonesian sources, the LPD design that the UAE Navy ordered from the Indonesian state-owned shipbuilder is longer than the ones that were recently ordered by the Philippines for its Navy. This design was originally developed by PT PAL in 2016 to meet the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN)’s requirements in its Multi-Role Support Ship (MRSS) acquisition program.

In the new design which has been offered to UAE Navy since 2020, PT PAL has lengthened the ship to 163 meters from the original 122 meters length of the Indonesian Navy (TNI-AL)’s Makassar-class LPD, which was used as the base for the development. The new LPD’s design also has a 24 meters beam, 6 meters draft, and a displacement of more than 12,500 tonnes.

Notable among its features are three helipads to operate three medium-sized helicopters simultaneously, a hangar with a large enough capacity to accommodate two helicopters, highly customizable due to its flexible payload bays and modular mission systems, as well as equipped with automated launch and recovery systems for Rigid Inflatable Hull Boats (RHIB) and landing craft.


It has been projected that the new LPD design will have a maximum speed of 18 knots, a cruising speed of 15 knots, and a 30-days endurance. PT PAL also stated that the design can be armed with a 76 mm naval main gun, 20 mm to 30 mm Remote Controlled Weapon Stations (RCWS), or Close-In Weapon Systems (CIWS), 12,7 mm heavy machine guns as well as counter-measures stations for self-defense against various threats.

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Electric motorcycle newcomer Alva has an assembly plant in Delta Silicon, Ckarang, Bekasi Regency, West Java. The plant has a production capacity of 100 thousand units per year.

"For now, we are still focusing on the Jabodetabek area," said Purbaja Pantja, President Director of Ilectra Motor Group (IMG) at the Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show or GIIAS 2022 automotive exhibition at ICE, BSD City, Tangerang, Monday, August 15, 2022. IMG is a manufacturer of Alva electric motors.

Alva released One as the first product at GIIAS 2022 on Thursday, August 11. This bongsor electric scooter is equipped with a 60V 45A (2.7 kWh) lithium battery. This battery can be charged using a 70.5V 15A charger with a charging time of about 4 hours.

This battery can be used to drive with a range of up to 70 kilometers on a single charge. This electric motor can be driven up to a speed of 90 km per hour.

This motorcycle has a maximum torque of 46 Nm with power from an electric motor of 5.7 PS. "At the booth we set up a dyno to test the performance of one, and some consumers can even get higher than the factory claims, it can be 51 Nm," purbaja said.

IMG Director Rahmat Septriwan said that consumers who buy Alva electric bikes do not have to worry about running out of power halfway through. Because, he said, Alva consumers will be equipped with a 24-hour emergency service that is ready to lend batteries to consumers who run out of power while driving.

"Consumers can also buy an additional one more battery because in the Alva One motorcycle is already equipped with two battery slots, one slot can be used to place spare batteries. By carrying two batteries, the total mileage has doubled to 140 km," he said.

He added that the company is also preparing an application that can be downloaded via consumers' smartphones that will make it easier for them to use electric motorcycles on a daily basis. The application, he said, has a variety of features such as information on the nearest charging point or location (SPKLU), battery indicators, to features to turn the motorcycle on and off.

The price of Alva One when it was launched reached RP 34.9 million (on the road DKI Jakarta). This electric motorcycle is called the equivalent of a gasoline motor with a capacity of 125-150cc.

University of Indonesia's Leading Innovation for 77 Years of the Republic of Indonesia

mediaindonesia.com | Humanities


1660750489240.png


SEVEN more decades of pride. In August 2022, the Republic of Indonesia was 77 years old, while the University of Indonesia (UI) celebrated its 72nd anniversary in February 2022. At this year's Anniversary of the Republic of Indonesia, we are invited to be more optimistic: "Recover Faster, Rise Stronger."

At the age of more than seven decades, UI has always shown its existence as the best campus, and is present to color the country's journey.

In the 2023 edition of the QS World University Rankings, UI is ranked 11th out of 64 institutions; Times Higher Education (THE) UI ranked 18th out of 76 institutions; Times Higher Education (THE) World University Impact Rankings UI ranked 3rd in Southeast Asia; and the University Rankings 2022 version of the SCImago Institutions Rankings UI ranked 13th.

In Indonesia, UI won the highest award at the League of Legal Entity State Universities, namely in the category of the Main Performance Indicator Excellence Award (IKU) for State Universities (PTN) in 2021/2022 which was announced on June 27, 2022. The two awards won were IKU PTNBH (IKU 6), where last year UI was ranked 8th and now soared to rank 1, and the Highest IKU Award Top 10% Liga PTN BH.

In the field of research, from the Salemba Campus and Depok Campus, various innovations that are the fruit of thoughts from UI researchers continue to be encouraged. This can be seen from the many contributions of UI since the pandemic broke out, for the handling of Covid-19 and solutions for the impact it causes in the community. Among other things, innovations that produce Covent-Ventilator Type 1 products by a team chaired by Dr. Basari, S. T., M. Eng from the Faculty of Engineering (FT) UI.

This year, the innovation that was introduced to the public and grabbed quite a lot of attention was the Red and White electric bus.

For approximately three years, UI collaborated with its partners - including PT Mobil Anak Bangsa (MAB), PT Pindad, PT NSAD, and PT AICOOL -- to realize the presence of this electric bus. Ui researchers built a chassis platform, driving system, braking system, control system, inverter, dashboard, and cooling system (air conditioning).

For the large bus class with a length of 12 meters and a weight of 16 tons, the Merah Putih bus has the highest Domestic Component Level (TKDN) in Indonesia. This bus is able to accommodate a passenger weight of 13 tons with a maximum speed of 120 km / h. This project started from the design of electric bus technology led by researchers from the Faculty of Engineering UI, and partners who are practitioners from the industrial world. This electric bus made by UI will be a means of transportation to support the activities of the G20 Presidency in October-November 2022 in Bali.

Other academic research findings that have been tested for benefits are Electric Tubes (TaLis) and Gotongroyong.in platforms. TaLis is a lightweight and portable tool and can store 630Wh of electrical energy based on lithium-ion batteries. This work was very helpful during the Lombok and Palu earthquake disasters.

Gotongroyong.in is a no-money donation platform. To raise donation funds, platform users simply watch a 10-second ad which is then converted into a donation. There is still a long line of superior products from UI inventors, which are a real contribution to the country, including baby incubators, stem cells, corporate zakat calculations, and eye implants.

In the field of financial technology, three alumni of the Faculty of Computer Science UI created an innovative free interbank fund transfer platform called Flip. Flip works as a bridge for interbank transactions. Currently Flip has received legality from Bank Indonesia and can be used to make transfers from and to major Indonesian banks.
