a week with MMC-Gamuda Joint Venture, Bukit Mertajam site office

Malaysian Mining Corp and Gamuda formed a joint venture; MMC-Gamuda Joint Venture Sdn Bhd to be the main contractor for the Electrified Double Track Project (EDTP) between Ipoh and Padang Besar for Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTMB). This project involves the laying of two new parallel tracks to replace the existing single-track, including new stations, bridges, as well as modern electrification and signalling systems. All those works involve about RM12bil.. wow, that's a lot. that figure might be climbing up due to unexpected cost as well as due to changes made to the design of the infrastructure.
More infos can be read at the official portal

My first week with MMC-Gamuda in Bukit Mertajam has gone smoothly. I was placed under supervision of Mr. Vincent Tan Bun Sen, manager of Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) department. I was introduced to Mr. Ong Joo Leong to assist my transition into this multi-billion project. I had a little schock when Mr Ong showed me some of the drawing, of course it wasnt the first time I saw that kind of drawing, but it's way different from what i had learnt throughout the mechanical course in UNITEN. The drawing shows where the new tracks are to be laid, new bridges over the track, new upgraded stations and other facilities to be built. More civil than mechanical.

But luckily i have basic knowledge in AutoCAD, so I just need to learn 1 or 2 things when required to work with the drawing in order to get myself familiarised with it. From the drawing, I have learnt that when replacing road crossing on railway track with a new road over bridge (ROB, or flyover bridge), the project involves a lot of other things as well. Relocation works to relocate services such as cables and pipes belong to Tenaga Nasional (TNB), Telekom (TMB), Perbadanan Air Pulau Pinang and other tecommunication companies. The work depends on where they were laid, if the new ROB affects them, they need to be relocated.

Technical side, so far I have only learnt theoretically how the relocation works to be done from their Method of Statement (MS, some might call it work plan manual)which prescribed and approved by a consultant. Some relocation works need Pipe Jacking or Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) method in order to lay down cables or pipes crossing under the railway track or under an infrastructure. I wish to see these works, as well as other works involved in the project, and try some of them myself. Maybe in the next week.

Some advice from my supervisor Mr Vincent:
- I am still in learning curve, so learn as much as i can in managing a project,
- from this point, I can determine my future whether I want to be a Contractor or a Consultant,
- for a Mechanical engineer to be M&E engineer of a project is easier than an Electrical engineer,
- the faster we do work, the more we achive, but of course all must be planned
- i forgot already other advices

Since I have no access to internet at the site office, I have to update this blog on weekly basis. I will upload some photos of the project later.

We controlled the match from the beginning as our opponent were pinned back inside their area. The opponent's goalkeeper pick out the ball from their own net 3 times as Naga (Fahmi) scored a goal in between of Hakam's brace. I played my role as right defence

get fixed

When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down on your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
If you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down on your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down on your face
And I...

Tears stream down on your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I...

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

I just wanna fix myself
