"A" 's. The only time his studies
suffered a lapse, was in 1971
due to construction work around
his home in Santa Helena. Giri-
gorio doesn't feel that the course
was a burden to him, on the
contrary, he enjoyed it very much
because he felt that his main
goal was to progress in his edu-

he has obtained his MULO di-

classes, and has completed ICS

An important factor in the
storage of oil product is the
maintenance of product specifi-
cation. To keep a product on
specification it must be kept free
from contamination. A major
contributor to the problem may
be the presence of corrosive
materials in the tanks. The cor-
rosion of the storage tank by the
product can cause the stored
product to be off-specification.
Early this year, during an in-
ternal inspection of Tanks 762
thru 765, built as part of the HDS-

I project, it was revealed that a
considerable amount of iron
corrosion product, adhering to
the roof sides and bottoms of
the tanks, was exposed to the
oil. The four tanks, measuring
226 feet in diameter by 60 feet
in height, each have a capacity
of 350,000 barrels, and store gas
oil for feedstocks to the Gas Oil
Hydrofiner Unit (Gofiner), where
fuel oil with a low sulfur con-
tent is produced.

marked that he spent about 12
hours a week on his lessons. He
also enjoyed it very much, be-
causes as a hobby he likes to re-
pair radio and TV sets in his
spare time, and this gave him an
excellent opportunity to "learn
by doing."

Anselmo, who has twenty-two
years of service with Lago, has
completed other RCA Institute
courses, namely Basic Electro-

Towers For Hydrogen Plant Lifted

With Manitowoc Crane and Ringer

V- s Jb

Sitting on the Ringer which allows 360 degrees rotation, the Mani-
towoc Crane slowly lifts tower for Hydrogen Plant.
Coloca arlba e Ringer cual ta permit rotacion di 360 grades, e grua
Manitowoc lentamente ta hiza column pa Planta Hidrogeno.

Columnanan pa Hydrogen Plant Hiza

Cu Grua Manitowoc y RenchiSpecial

Un punto decisive den con-
struccion di HDS-II a ser alcan-
sa ariba Diasabra, Juli 28 cu e
hizamento di e dos columnanan
"catacarb" (100 tonelada di pe-
so cada uno y midiendo 170
pia y 190 pia respectivamente)
pa e plant di hidrogeno nobo
(H3AR). Consider como e tra-
bao mas dificil di hizamento di e
proyecto HDS-II, e tarea a ser
hasl door di McKee cu un grua
Manitowoc 4100 gehuur, di 200
tonelada nominal, y cu acceso-
rionan espacial pa aumenta su
capacidad pa hiza. Tur dos toren
a ser hiza entire 7 a.m. y 3 p.m.
Pa prepare e grua pa e tra-
bao aki, tres alteracionnan prin-
cipal a wordu hacl na dje. Na
promer lugar, e grua cu nor-
malmente ta move ariba pista di
hero, a ser hiza cu jack y des-
pues a wordu bahA ariba un Ma-
nitowoc 4100W Ringer. Esaki ta
un reenchi di staal cu un diame-
ter di 36 pia cual ta sinta ariba
biganan di madera duro di 12"x-
12"x8'. Coloca ariba dos biga
grand na cada banda pegA na
e pistanan di e grua y cu ta sin-
ta ariba rolnan poni ariba e
reenchi, henter e grua (Cabina
y pistanan) por bira 360 grades.
Na di dos lugar, e "boom" di
240 pia di a grua a ser had mas

cortico te na 130 pia pa wordu
usa como un master. E master
ta keda den un position casi
recht incline6 un tiki patras) y
no ta move durante un trabao
di hizamento. Pa action di hiza-
mento un otro "boom" a ser pe-
ga na e portador di e "boom"
ariba e cabina. E dos "boom-
nan" ta forma e letter "V" y ta
word teni na halto pa medio di
fahanan di staal y e cablenan
pa alza e "boom".
Finalmente, 150 toneladas di
blokkinan di concreet a wordu
poni ariba e banda patras di e
cabina como peso opuesto. E
capacidad di e grua awor a ser
redobl te na 400 tonelada.
UsA pa di promer biaha na La-
go cu e columnanan pa H3AR,

nan a proba di ta mas eficiente
y ta gasta menos tempo cu otro
technieknan di hizamento. Com-

bao similar ariba e dos promer

A turning point in HDS-II con-
struction was reached on Satur-
day, July 28 with the lifting of
the two catacarb towers (100
tons each in weight and measur-
ing 170 ft. and 190 ft.), for
the new hydrogen plant (H3AR).
Considered to be the most dif-
ficult lifting job of the HDS-ll
project, the operation was per-
formed by McKee with a rent-
ed 200-ton nominal capacity
Manitowoc 4100 crane with
special attachments to increase
its lifting capacity. Both towers
were set in place between 7:00
a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
To prepare the crane for the
task at hand, three major altera-
tions were made to it. First, the
crane which normally moves on
tracks, was jacked up and then
lowered onto a Manitowoc 4100W
Ringer. The latter is a 36
ft. diameter steel ring which sits
on 12"x12"x8' hard wooden tim-
bers. Resting on two main side
beams attached to the tracks
and sitting on rollers positioned
on the ring, the entire crane

(carriage and tracks) can rotate
360 degrees.
Second, the crane's 240-ft.
boom was shortened to 130 ft.
to be used as a mast. The mast
remains in an almost upright po-
sition (leaning slightly back-
wards) and does not move dur-
ing a hoisting operation. For
lifting purposes a second 240 ft.
boom was attached to the boom
carrier on top of the carriage.
The3e two booms form the letter
"V" and are held in an upward
position by means of steel straps
and boom hoist pendants.
Finally, 150 tons of concrete

Tanki di Gas Oil Ta Haya Capanan

(Continued from page 1)
To prevent the plugging of the
Gofiner reactor by a high level
of corrosion products in the
tank, it was deemed necessary
to install a protective coating on
the inside of the shells, bottoms
and floating roofs of these tanks.
The first tank to be fully coated
was 764. Aruba Painting Com-
pany, the contractor handling
the job, used approximately six-
teen men on the first tank. The
Initial work called for extensive
cleaning of the tank by sand-
blasting the entire internal sur-
faces. This was followed by the
application of primers and sub-
sequently the final coating using
about 2350 gallons of protective
paint per tank.

The entire project, from the
sandblasting of the tank's inte-
rior to the final paint coating
which required a seven-day cur-
ing time, took about four months.
In the meantime, Tank 764 has
been returned to service, while
work is about to begin on Tank
765. The application of protect-
ive coating of all four tanks is
scheduled for completion in
June 1974.
The Project Engineer for the
Gofiner Feed Tank Coatings is
K. T. Wong, a Senior Engineer
in the Mechanical Engineering
Division, while the Field Engin-
eer is A. R. Velasquez, an En-
gineering Assistant B in the Me-
chanical Construction & Turn-
around/Facilities Division.

I nterno pa Preveni Contaminacion

Un factor important den war-
damento di productonan di aze-
ta ta e mantencion di specifica-
cion di e product. Pa tene un
product segun specificacion e
master keda liber di contamina-
cion. Un contribudor principal
den e problema aki por ta e pre-
sencia di materialnan corosivo
den e tankinan. E frustiamento
den e tanki di almacenahe por
haci cu e product ta keda fuera
di specificacion.
Durante promer parti di e anja
aki, durante un inspection in-
terno di Tankinan 762 te cu 765,
construl como parti di e pro-
yecto di HDS-1, a keda demos-
tra cu un considerable cantidad

Pa prevent e tapamento di e
