A team of 7 EXCO members met with Tuan Haji Bacho Pilong, Senior Vice President of Project
Delivery & Technology PETRONAS, at an Appreciation Lunch hosted by the Association of Materials
Vibration Insulation Practitioners Malaysia (AMVIP). The team, led by Ir. Max Ong Chong Hup
(Secretary-General of AMVIP) and Puan Siti Haslina (EXCO Member of AMVIP), briefed Tuan Haji
Bacho on the 1st AMVIP 2022 Conference and the success of the event held in July 2022. On behalf
of AMVIP, Ir. Max highlighted the conference delegates were impressed with the video sharing
session presented by Tuan Haji Bacho during the Conference, in particular “ The Journey “.
One of the matters that arose from the conference was a proposal to set up a number of task forces comprising of representatives from oil companies, contractors, suppliers, consultants and academicians to improve project delivery with cost efficiencies and best practices. Tuan Haji Bacho supports such initiative as it creates a healthy environment for all stakeholders and encourages continuous improvement and innovation. Such cooperation will promote open communication amongst all stakeholders and can contribute towards sustainability in areas of materials, vibration, insulation and corrosion. Pn. Siti Haslina Ramli, Principal - Materials, Corrosion & Inspection (MCI) of GTS PETRONAS accepted the challenge to co-ordinate this project under AMVIP.
