IN MY MIND, LIKE CYCLING,
PIPE-LAYING IS ALL ABOUT
Pipeline Engineer – CPM
Road Bike Enthusiast
In cycling, 90 rpm is a good cadence for me. At that rate I deliver the optimum level of torque to the cranks from my pumping glutes. My polar says I’m beating at 140 bpm and my thighs and hamstrings are beginning to feel the burn. But that’s all good. That’s home for me. I can do that all day.
I’ll get ready for it the night before. I carbo-load. Maybe I’ll cheat a bit, although not the healthiest of food. Super-mie. Throw in an egg, and that will be my protein input. Make sure I’m adequately fueled to carry me through the distance. Not too much though. Don’t want to encourage that potbelly. At my age, it’s easy come, tough to go.
Groupset checked, rotated and lightly lubricated… tyres at 100 psi judging from the road surface. I know my bike and I’m familiar with the route. A few ups and downs with a strong punchy climb to finish with.
So too in pipeline construction. Put the proper Men, Machines, Management (and Money) in the right mix, then plod on. I’m familiar with the route of my next pipeline project, and I’m confident. I actually believe that we, myself included, are “the pipeline people”. “We lay ‘em, we leave ‘em satisfied”, we proudly say. I’ve walked the distance. Now I have to walk the talk.
In my mind pipe-laying is all about good reconnaissance, anticipation and planning. Before the first joint is welded up together, the whole project is done in my head. Then all you have to do is put in place good skilled personnel, hand them the correct equipments and just like cycling you get to your natural cadence. One of the keys to achieving great progress on a pipeline job is to get everybody in tune with all its components and quickly reach optimum cadence or rhythm …
… from then on, it’s just plain sailing …
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.
