I’m not known for enthusing about people doing their jobs well – that’s my expectation – but I want to place on record my admiration for the job John Bretones and David Savio have done in Indonesia over the past week in regard to reviving our Port Lincoln 3 expansion project.
John and David have done an excellent job under very difficult and no doubt stressful circumstances both from a business sense and from the broader terrorist situation prevailing in Indonesia as you can see from the “Red Alert” which no doubt must have been on their minds and those of their extended families.
They have achieved more than I personally dared hoped and I commend their efforts to you and I trust that the organisation sees fit to acknowledge their work at an appropriate time.
Mr. Brian Williams
Congratulations guys – the GT is loaded, stowed and due to sail ex Jakarta at 0900hrs tomorrow – ETA Melbourne 11/12/09. It goes without saying that it wouldn’t have happened without you at the pointy end and I want to personally thank you three for the terrific individual and joint contributions you have made to bringing it home for Synergen and International Power. John – you did yourself and Synergen proud throughout this whole sorry saga in extremely trying circumstances. The disappointments, frustrations and the continual need to organise the locals and re-do things that hadn’t been done properly would have gutted a lesser man. When you left here for the final trip back to Indonesia you swore that you’d get the GT packed and onto this ship – and you did it against all the odds. Well done!!!! None of us sitting back here will ever really know the extent of the effort and demands it took doing the job on the ground but I’ve been around long enough to know that things don’t just “happen” to turn out OK – it’s guys like you that make them happen and I want you to know that it’s very much appreciated Again, my thanks and high regard.
Mr. Brian Williams
