Infrastructure Management & Project is an investment implementation function based on the budget written in RKAP of each period. The investments carried out are spread in each work location from Sabang to Merauke Island of Indonesia. Based on the pareto diagram analysis, the main cause for the high construction cost of Fuel tank was the High Construction Cost of Fuel Tank Foundation. To overcome this problem, Concrete Admixture Cane & Carrot Option (Molasses & Daucus Carota) is determined as alternative solution of Common Concrete Foundation. By applying this alternative solution, the Quality of Fuel Tank Cap. 3000 KL Concrete Foundation increased by 51,3% (K-300 equivalen 24,9 Mpa to K-450 equivalen 37,674 Mpa) Compressive Strength. Concrete Admixture Cane & Carrot Option can Reducing Construction Cost 5,54% too. In addition, the acceleration of the work of Construction of Fuel Tank Cap. 3000 KL Concrete Foundation is as much as 21 Calendar Days. This innovation has been endorsed by an external party, PT Surveyor Indonesia, PT. Sucofindo and Institut Teknologi Bandung. Replication has been carried out for the Pier III Construction Project in Fuel Terminal Baubau.
