EVEN WHEN OTHERS PANIC,
I DON’T BUDGE. THE REASON?
BOY E SETIABUDHI
VP of Operation
When I put on my cap just before I walk out of the locker room I know I’m ready for the 18 holes ahead. I have gone through the score card briefly and took mental notes. Yardages, sand-traps, green speeds… I’m focused on the challenges ahead. Other might hit farther and crisper, but for me, a little course management goes a long way.
Golf is a religion for some people, but not in a good way. They try to aim their shot and pray for a miracle. For me it’s more of a science. If I spend time learning the shape of my shots on the range, I know what I can bring to the gold course. This is a game on consistency. Of hitting the same shots again and again. Not a game of miracles.
My swing is not particularly pretty, nor does my drive occasionally go for 300 yards. My game is knowing my ball will end up, even if it’s 15 yards shorter than yours. I don’t let that bother me. If you need me for anything, you can find me on the fairways. They say that the biggest challenge in golf is the mental game. I can’t agree more. Others might lose their heads but even when in trouble, be it sand-traps, hazards or lay-ups, I get back to my natural game. Play the game as only I know how.
I tend to carry this philosophy to my work. Just like golf, much of pipeline constructions is done before heading outside. How could it not be so, when a poor preparation translates to months of delay or even withdrawal? The only way it can be done is by truly knowing what our strengths and weakness are. It doesn’t bother me how everyone else do it. I know how and why we do what we do. My mantra is simple: Never under perform but don’t overreach. It’s tempting to over-promise, but ending up in the rough is never a pleasant ordeal.
In the pipeline constructions industry, managing strengths and weakness is not always the sexiest aspect but their importance is fundamental to executions in later stages. Inevitably, things would not always go as planned. But even when others panic, I don’t. The reason? I know my game!
TAMBAK LOROK Proyek Tambak Lorok 130km
Upon arriving in Semarang’s Achmad Yani International Airport, you are automatically within half an hour from reaching the centre of Semarang. On your way there, on the left side of the road, you will be able to see two of Citra Panji Manunggal’s finest works. Well, technically you could only see one and very little of the other one.
Not far from the airport is the LPG terminal. Tucked in within the harbour, you could recognise the facility from its four spherical tanks, one of which is painted green. Each sphere has a capacity of 2.500 Ton and it is from here that the whole of Central Java receives its supply of LPG.
The other work is a little trickier appreciate. Drive a little further towards the city and you’ll see the Tambak Lorok Power Plant. The supply of gas to run the plant is provided from Gundih, some 140km away, through 20-inch diameter pipes. The fruit from the hard labour that goes into the construction of the pipes though are x metres deep underground. The only thing visible is the receiving unit right next to the plant.
“SEMARANG HAS A SPECIAL PLACE IN THE HEART AND HISTORY OF CPM”
The construction of the LPG terminal was the first of its kind for the Company while the Tambak Lorok project engraved a deep impression amongst the men. Along the years, the city had fed and entertained the men well. Going on a culinary tour in Semarang is like going to an Aerosmith concert; you’ll never get tired of it and it never disappoints.
“ONE OF THE FAVORITES HAS TO BE THE LUMPIA IN THE LOMBOK ALLEY”
One of the favorites has to be the Lumpia in the Lombok alley. Wrapped in the most delicate of pancakes is a melange of pan-fried eggs, vegetables and the signature ingredient that makes Lumpia Semarang the delight that it is: bamboo shoot. It gives the dish a distinctly tangy aroma that becomes its calling card. At Rp. 10,000,- each most people grab a sack and by a few batches. If they don’t finish it themselves there will always be someone nearby to offer a helping stomach. In fact this is one of the must-have things when the men come back to Jakarta. They are akin to a proof of visit.
The Lumpia joint in Lombok alley happens to be right next to one of the tourist attractions in the city. First built in 1746 the Tay Kak Sie temple serves the predominantly Hokien Chinese community in the city. Its red columns and facade hits at you and the unmistakenly oriental design takes you somewhere far away from Semarang until the scent of lumpia reminds you where you are.
If the men of CPM sounds a little too spoilt, eating tasty lumpias instead of the de rigeur nasi bungkus, then they have deserved it. The Tambak Lorok project is by no means an easy feat. The pipes are laid in places other contractors would have had nightmares about. A great portion of it is next to a live and busy railway where even
the slightest shift in the soil could cause the railings to be displaced. And if that is not hard enough, the pipes would have to cross busy roads without causing too much traffic.
But challenges like those are where CPM thrive. What you don’t get from seeing a finished product is the sight of hundreds of tons hard steel-pipes crossing through a backdrop of the locals casava fields, where inevitably compensations have to be paid. In an environment where chaos could easily prevail, the men of CPM are able to keep harmony.
