Dredge "Georgia" cutting through reef in lagoon.
Draga "Georgia" cortando door di rif den lagoen.


Engineer B. L. Williamson Project Supt. J. Wilkerson
Enginiero B. L. Williamson. explains dredging map.


Entrance in Reef, Turning Basin

Dredged, Land Reclaimed in Lagoon


The first and important
part of the preparatory work
for the Fla. 150,000,000 Hy-
drodesulphurization P r o ject
was completed May 26, 1969
by the dredge "Georgia" of
Great Lakes Dredge & Dock
Company. This company car-
ried out the project as sub-
contractor for the Royal
Netherlands Harbour Works.
Since the time dredging oper-
ations started in the lagoon
at Lago on April 2, a huge
amount of material has been
removed.
The dredge cut a new en-
trance through the reef, 500
feet wide on the surface and
sloping down to 300 feet at
the bottom with a depth of
37 feet. Within the lagoon, a
turning basin was dredged to
34 feet. The material dredged
filled up an area extending
from Powerhouse No. 1 to the
General Office Building (see
map). Part of the reclaimed
area, rising some 10 feet
above mean sea water level,
will be used to erect the HDS
facilities.
At present a 325 feet pier
is being built at the new re-
claimed site by the Royal
Netherlands Harbor Works.


The pier will be used for
landing heavy equipment and
later for dry cargo shipment.
The total cost of the dredg-
ing project is valued at ap-
proximately Fls. 1,400,000.
The dredge "Georgia", with
Billy P. Coleman as captain,
Jim Lane as chief engineer
and Chief Mate E. W. Pier-
son, came from Tampa, Flo-
rida, after dredging a harbor
there. The project at Lago is
their third job. Field engineer
for the project was L. Mal-
oney, while J. Wilkerson was
Project Superintendent.

48 feet wide, with a draft of

Employees' Identification Badges in The Course of Years


.... 1939 1939 1941


1942 1950


1950 1958


1958 1968


In the course of years, employee
identifications have changed in size,
shape and content. Until 1939, the
oval metal badge contained only a
number as identification.
However, during the war years it
became necessary to have better and
more personalized identification
badges. Since that time all badges
have been provided with the em-
ployee's picture. The first picture
badge was rectangular and a later
type was round, all in metal frames.
In 1950, the era of plastic badges
started. The first plastic badge was
square, followed by the oval type.
The new badge is since 1968.
