Refinery's Highest Concrete Stack

Built for Pipestills Nos. 5 and 6

Towering over other high
structures in the refinery these
days is the recently completed
common furnace stack for
Nos. 5 and 6 Pipestills. At a
height of 350 feet, this is the
seventh concrete stack in the
refinery and the tallest one.
Construction of this smoke-
stack began early this year by
Tileman and Company of Lon-
don as part of the Petrochem
Furnace Replacement Project
of Nos. 5 and 6 Pipestill units
near the north refinery road. A
contractor's crew of nine erect-
ed it, working from a ring-like
steel wire mesh cage which was
moved upward as the work pro-
A total of 2100 tons of con-
crete was poured for the huge
stack including the foundation
- which was built in 47 stages,
using steel rods and steel forms
for support and reinforcement.
The structure has a 41/2 to 9 inch
thick refractory lining from the
flue gas inlets to the top.
At every 30 feet interval there
are "windows" in the stack for
ventilation. The base measures
26 feet in diameter, while the
upper portion is 22% feet in

The construction of a con-
crete structure instead of the
usual steel has several advant-
ages, the most important one
being that it is sturdier and can
stand higher. In the case of this
stack, the smoke emanating
from it will be dispersed higher
in the sky, thus reducing conta-
mination and subsequent dete-
rioration of other neighboring
units downwind.
Other concrete stacks at
Lago are two at No. 1 Power-
house, the No. 2 Powerhouse
stack, the V2AR furnace stack,
the recently completed V3AR
furnace stack, all of which are
300 ft. high, and the HDS-II flare
stack which is 325 ft. tall.
The refinery's tallest stack
which was coated with dum-dum
(a thick paste-like paint)
to protect its wall, will serve
the Nos. F-501 and F-601 crude
furnaces of the revamped units,
the new heat exchangers and
pumps, and the units' new sub-
station, when Pipestills 5 & 6
are put into operation in May
Charged with the stack pro-
ject was Esso Research Field
Engineer Dave Schmehr.

registration on October 12 (ex-
tended from Oct. 1) over 200
persons of age 18 and up have
entered their names for partici-
pation in the III Exhibition of
Popular Arts. This exhibition is
again organized under direct-
ion of Hubert Bool, Head of
the Department of Culture &
Education in Aruba.
This record number compares
with 125 amateur artists who sub-
mitted 309 works of art in 1971
and 148 participants who turn-
ed in 435 projects in 1972. Over
500 entries are expected to be
on display in this year's exhibi-

include paintings, sculptures,
handicrafts, needleworks or
other artistic creations, were
turned in to the Department of
Culture & Education on Iraus-
quin Plaza in Oranjestad during
the month of October.

Recognizing the growing in-
terest in this cultural exhibition,
several prizes have been made
available by the local merchants
in addition to the three first
prizes donated by Lago (FIs.
500, Fis. 250, and FIs 150).
The exhibition will be held In
Socledad Bolivariana from No-
vember 10 to 18.

Periodic Turnaround of Company Piers Ensures

Improved Ship
Since's Lago's three Finger
Piers were modernized in 1968,
and the West Pier was recon-
structed in 1970, they have
greatly facilitated and speeded
up tanker movements in the La-
go Harbor. To assure maximum
performance of these mooring
and loading facilities, a tho-
rough inspection is conducted
on them more or less every five
As a result of a survey by La-
go's Equipment Inspection
Group early this year, the work
for repairing, replacing, remov-
ing or painting of piping, struc-
tures, electrical facilities on Fin-
ger Piers 1 and 3 and the West
Pier was awarded to contractor
George Wimpey and Co., Ltd. of
The turnaround of Finger Pier
No. 1, which started in June,
was completed on July 17, 1973.
Recently, Wimpey with Wescar
as subcontractor, finished their
work on Finger Pier No. 3,
which was returned to service
on September 12. Finger Pier
No. 2 was not handled this time,
as it underwent a turnaround
last year. At present, the West
Pier, which was taken out of
service on September 13, is
back in service following exten-
sive repair work.
Handling a job of this magni-
tude required 140 men, includ-
ing Lago and contractor's per-

Handling in San
sonnel, who utilized such heavy,
equipment as a barge with a
Lima crane of 100-ton capacity
and a 100-ft. boom, tractors, pile
drivers and extractors. The
mechanical work on all three
piers mainly involved repairs or
renewal of shore piping to the
pier manifold, cleaning and re-
pairing loading and discharge
lines, fire water lines and drain-
ing lines. Work on the pier
structures called for renewal, re-
placement or repair to beams,
platforms, supports, stairways,
fenders, car pullers and quick-
release mooring hooks.
In addition to electrical work,
which covered replacement or
renovation of anti-corrosive de-
vices (anodes) and installation
of new mercury vapor lamps, all
newly installed piping and struc-
tures were painted with Rustban
191 and finished with Vapalon.
a highly anti-corrosive, protect-
ive paint.
One of the most difficult tasks
of the turnaround was the lift-
ing of the Finger Pier No. 1 and
3 loading arms from their posi-
tion for inspection and repair.
Each of the 17-ton, 70-ft. long
octopus-like loading arm struc-
tures, which are hydraulically
operated, had to be brought
back in top condition through
adjustment and lubrication. Four
of these at Finger Pier No. 1
were repaired. But the most ar-

SNicolas Harbor
duous job was the replacement
of the central jointed part of
one of the loading arm assem-
bly at Finger Pier No. 1, which
included the removal of the out-
board arm and other related ac-
cessories. This highly technical
job was possible through the
crane with a high-lifting and
long-reach capacity installed on
the barge.
Besides the regular repair
work recently completed, the
main job on the West Pier re-
quired the driving of 34 steel
piles under existing structure of
the walkway for the construction
of a completely new fendering
system. This consists of buffers
with 4% inch thick rubber to
absorb the impact of mooring
ships. The 400-ft. long and 6-ft.
wide walkway begins at the
shore and connects the loading
rack to the two concrete cell
platforms on each side. To car-
ry out this job, approximately
twenty precast concrete slabs
had to be removed through the
use of a crane and barge.
The piles were driven into
the ground and were welded
to a steel structure by a crew
of about 20 workmen working
in two shifts.
The West Pier turnaround was
completed last week and is now
again in optimum condition to
