BANDUNG, NNC – Having been present for 27 years as part of a state technology company, Len Industri realized the mission of the SOE Present to the Country by organizing the Excelen: Innovation for the Country, an offering from the next generation to Indonesia.
The event was attended by SOE Minister Rini Soemarno who launched Len Industri's innovation products and released export products from PT Pindad, PT Dahana and PT Bio Farma which were part of the synergy of SOEs to build the country.
Excelen: Innovation for the Country also exhibits products of the nation's children ranging from transportation systems to renewable energy, navigation technology to information and communication technology and defense electronics.
"SOEs must be a pioneer in domestic products to reduce imports and as an effort to improve the nation's competitiveness. For this reason, the government put high hopes for Len Industri because it owns ability of technological innovation. Len Industri, supported by most young engineers, is the hope of the nation in achieving national aspirations to produce national quality products of the nation's children who are able to compete internationally," said Minister Rini Soemarno.
Len Industri also launched an innovative solar photovoltaic (PV) system for housing and office products called LenSOLAR. This product is present to contribute to the success of the Indonesian government's target to convert 23 percent of the total energy supply into renewable energy by 2025.
The launch of LenSOLAR for years to come will be accompanied by continuous education on renewable energy to the community and business people, not only regarding savings but also the long-term benefits of using renewable energy.
"The launch of LenSOLAR answers the challenge to Len Industri to become a company that is not only able to compete in the business to business (B2B) market but also in the business to consumer (B2C) market," said Minister Rini.
In addition, the company also launched Len Rescue, a Fast Emergency Responder device that can provide energy sources and emergency equipment in an emergency situation, for example in conditions such as natural disasters.
At this event, SOE Minister Rini Soemarno named the equipment LenTERA. As the name implies, LenTERA is expected to be a light in emergency situations.
In the field of transportation, the company launched Dynatron traction system. As a pioneer in the field of national electric traction systems, Len Industri also developed an electric traction system to be implemented in locomotives, light rail transit (LRT) trains, electric buses and electric motorbikes.
Meanwhile, to support the nation's independence in realizing state sovereignty, Len Industri launched defense electronics innovations namely Len-S200 Radar, LenSTRAD-M5 (Handheld) Military Radio and Len HDR20-M (Manpack) Radio.
"Len Industri's current progress cannot be separated from the role of the nation's children with enthusiasm and commitment to always innovate, making Len Industri a world-class technology company. All the forms of technology and innovation that we created in Len Industri for the country cannot be separated from the role of the team at Len Industri. It should be realized that the millennial generation is a generation of hope, the next generation, an innovator who is able to compete and be independent in technology," said Director of PT Len Industri (Persero) Zakky Gamal Yasin.
"These nation's children are the main wheel of development and innovation for this country. Without their existence, without idealism and without their enthusiasm the wheels of innovation will never turn and reach the point now. Len Industri wants to be a pioneer of technology companies that prioritize speed, accuracy and high discipline, because for us speed is the new currency of business."
As many as 70 percent of Len Industri's employees are the next generation people, who continue to grow and be encouraged to innovate. To foster this enthusiasm, Len Industri held Len’s Breakthrough, Milenovation Award 2018, an internal competition to create and innovate. This program is one of Len Industri's efforts to develop a vision from the electronics industry into become a world-class technology industry that is globally competitive.
