During a well-attended par-
ty at the Aruba Golf Club
June 26, 1970, management
members said farewell to Pre-
sident J. M. Ballenger.
Adding gaiety to the party
was typical Aruban folk music
from a barrel organ and a
quintet with violin, drum, four-
string guitar, and two "wiris".
At the end of the dinner,
Vice President LeRoy John-
ston addressed the outgoing
president. After presenting
Mr. Ballenger with a board-
mounted map of Aruba, a
photo album and a list of
paintings by J. B. Schweitz

Heaviest Pressure Vessel Transported by Sea Installed on HDS Site

A rather small and strange
looking ship, the M/V Lady
Jane with homeport Willem-
stad, Curacao, arrived at La-
go's HDS Pier on June 8. She
carried two reactors, one of
which is considered the heav-
iest single pressure vessel ever
transported by sea.
With a stainless steel inte-
rior lining and a 4-inch thick
wall, it is also the heaviest
process vessel in the refinery.
The reactors are for the
Heavy Vacuum Gas Oil Hy-
drodesulfurization Unit No.
26 at the HDS site.
From St. Nazaire, France,
the LST-type vessel, 250 feet
long and 1312 deadweight
tons, transported one 640-ton
reactor and a smaller 360-ton
reactor to Aruba in 18 days.
Looking like an ICBM (Inter-
Continental Ballistic Missile),
the larger reactor measures
135 feet long and 17 feet in
diameter. The other is 79 feet
long and 17 feet in diameter.
With a total length' of 214
feet, the two vessels almost
occupied the whole length of
the ship.
The loading and unloading
of such giants require know-
how, skill, planning and time.
As early as February this
year, the shipping company

Van der Laan of Rotterdam
planned the loading and un-
loading operations. In Aruba,
Rigging International (a sub-
contractor of Parsons Cor-
poration which is building the
HDS facilities), had special
transporters ready for the job.
The loading of the two re-
actors in St Nazaire took
nineteen days. At Lago it took
six days to get the vessels off
the ship.
The smaller vessel was un-
loaded first over the Lady
Jane's stern using the ship's
220-ton gantry crane. To un-
load the larger vessel, the
ship had to turn around and
moor with her bow to the
dock and open her bow gates.
To provide a "runway", 300
feet of rails were laid from
shore to the ship's deck. By
means of "super" jacks, the
huge reactor was subsequent-
ly lifted to insert two sup-
porting structures under the
vessel, each resting on four
sets of wheels (bogies) moun-
ted on the rails. From then on
it took some three hours to
inch the mass of steel a dis-
tance of 150 feet. From shore
the whole load was pulled by
a crane winch, while the tra-
vel speed was controlled by
cables from the ship's winches.

During this operation, the
ship had to shift about 1000
tons of seawater in its ballast
tanks to keep the deck in a
level position.
When the forward bogie
had reached far enough on
shore, a transporter unit of
Rigging International took
over that end of the load.
Another transporter "should-
ered" the rear end of the load
when the colossal reactor
moved onto firm ground, thus
relieving the ship's bogies.

Handling this extra-heavy
task were the twelve-man
crew of the "Lady Jane" and
three experts of Van der Laan
company, including Captain
Frank Muthert, and six men
of Rigging International un-
der direction of Gene Wilkens,
General Site Superintendent.
Supervising the operations for
Lago was Dick Plambeck, Es-
so Research & Engineering's
field engineer for the HDS

In one day the two trans-
porters moved the huge reac-
tor 1700 feet away to its oper-
ational base at Unit 26. Here
a set of two 180-foot high gin
poles raised the reactor into
an upright position and set it
on its foundation on June 18th.
