Lago President Roy L. Trusty (at left) and Lt. Governor O. S. Hen-
riquez address guests in Administration Building.

In a special ceremony on
August 20, 1971, Lago’s Fis.
175,000,000 Hydrodesulfurization
Complex was officially inaugur-
ated. The inaugural act took
place at 5 p.m. at the site of the
new complex where the Gover-
nor of the Netherlands Antilles,
Drs. B. M. Leito, cut a ribbon
and unveiled a commemoration
plaque. Following this, Lt. Gov-
ernor of Aruba O. S. Henriquez
symbolically started the plant by
turning a_ switch. Assisting in
the inauguration ceremonies was
Vallita Maduro, Miss Aruba 1971.

The special program for
guests started in the Administra-
tion Building where Lago’s Pre-
sident Roy L. Trusty welcomed
the guests and commented on

the significance of the new
plant.
Said he: "The HDS complex

represents the time and talent
of many people from Aruba and
from around the world... More
important than the hardware,
the project represents an achie-
vement that was made possible
by excellent cooperation be-
tween industry and government.”

In his speech, Mr. Trusty gave
special recognition to Lago em-
ployees: "The startup of our
new units represents one of the
most significant | accomplish-
ments in Lago’s history. Most of
the credit for one of the most
successful and safest large pro-
ject startups in the history of
Standard Oil Company of New
Jersey must go to our Lago em-
ployees who accepted full res-
ponsibility for bringing this com-
plex project on stream. In ad-
dition to being new technology,
these facilities were also started
up under full computer control

— as far as we know, this is a
first for the petroleum industry.
From observing this startup,
our advisors and shareholders
feel our Lago employees are
second to none in the world in
their ability to operate and main-
tain complex modern petroleum
processing equipment. We are
Particularly proud of this ac-
complishment.”

The inaugural address was
subsequently delivered by Lt.
Governor Henriquez, who stres-
sed the importance of the new
plant for the economy of Aruba:
Said Mr. Henriquez: "The in-
vestment involved demonstrates
very clearly Lago’s confidence
in its people and the future of
Aruba. Considering the large im-
pact that Lago’s well-being has
on the economy of this island,
we can safely say that Lago’s
progress is Aruba’s_ progress
and also the progress of the
Netherlands Antilles.”

He further stated: "We should
be very pleased today, because
thanks to joined efforts of gov-
ernment, private enterprise and
labor, this important project was

we have proven again in the An-

Mr. Henriquez continued say-
ing: "The HDS Project is also

President Trusty welcomes Governor Leito at the Administration
Building where the inauguration program started.

Standard Oil of New Jersey is
doing about air pollution through
its affiliate Lago in Aruba... The
Government and the people of

progressive attitude of Lago and
its stockholders and offer their
fullest cooperation also for the
future.”

After a bus tour of the HDS
complex and refinery, the guests
were taken to the HDS plant
site to witness the inauguration
ceremony.

Before unveiling the plaque,
Governor Leito congratulated
Lago and the people of Aruba
with this significant project.
Said the Governor: "The new
facilities constitute a substantial
contribution to the industrial ex-
pansion of this country and,
therefore, also to its general dev-
elopment... In this, as in many
other instances Lago, as a sub-
sidiary of the large Esso con-

Spanish Lagoon Marine Water Sport
Center Opened in Buccaneer Style

History went back to 1700 on
Saturday, August 14, 1971, when
the second Dutch Marine Sport
Center was officially opened at
Spanish Lagoon. The opening
was performed in a very original
manner. The center itself is also
original in two ways. It is built
in fort style and floats on a
barge, 100 ft. long, 40 ft. wide.

At 10:30 a.m. the Commander
of the Dutch Marine Barracks,
Lt. Col. T. A. M. van der Vaait,
welcomed the guests and rel-
ated the history of the Sport
Center. The first officer, Major
of the Marines W. Doorman, and
Quartermaster J. A. van Spaan-
donck were a few of the spark-
plugs behind the project, assist-
ed by other officers, petty of-
ficers and several marines. The
Commander pointed out that
this sport center is closer to the
Savaneta Camp and is located

at a more sheltered area. The
civil personnel who worked on
this project included P. A. Dirksz
and F. S. Tromp.

Following his speech, the
Commander asked those present
to turn to the fort to witness the
official opening. A battle scene
that had taken place many times
in the 17th century in the Ca-
ribbean was re-enacted. A
schooner with a pirate flag atop
was approaching, which alerted
the gun crew of three ancient
guns installed at the fort. When
the ship came within firing
range, each gun was fired, with
each "'shot” falling closer to the
ship. The pirates soon hoisted
the white flag atop and sailed
to the fort to surrender, thus
opening the new water sport
center for the Dutch marines.

In addition to club facilities
and a spring-board, there is al-
so an airconditioned room be-
low deck with bunk beds for
four.

As a‘souvenir, a commemor-
ation plaque and a ship bell
from the 2nd World War were
presented to Commander van
der Vaart. Other recognition
plaques went to Quartermaster
van Spaandonck, and Mike Ha-
gedoorn and Ernest Kervel for
their assistance.

The official part ended when
the bugler sounded "Abandon
Ship". A special cold treat was
awaiting Quartermaster van
Spaandonck who was swung in
the air by Commander and of-
ficers for a first official "splash
down” into the sea at the center.

Lago President Roy L. Trusty (at left) and Lt. Governor O. S. Hen-
riquez address guests in Administration Building.

In a special ceremony on
August 20, 1971, Lago’s Fis.
175,000,000 Hydrodesulfurization
Complex was officially inaugur-
ated. The inaugural act took
place at 5 p.m. at the site of the
new complex where the Gover-
nor of the Netherlands Antilles,
Drs. B. M. Leito, cut a ribbon
and unveiled a commemoration
plaque. Following this, Lt. Gov-
ernor of Aruba O. S. Henriquez
symbolically started the plant by
turning a_ switch. Assisting in
the inauguration ceremonies was
Vallita Maduro, Miss Aruba 1971.

The special program for
guests started in the Administra-
tion Building where Lago’s Pre-
sident Roy L. Trusty welcomed
the guests and commented on

the significance of the new
plant.
Said he: "The HDS complex

represents the time and talent
of many people from Aruba and
from around the world... More
important than the hardware,
the project represents an achie-
vement that was made possible
by excellent cooperation be-
tween industry and government.”

In his speech, Mr. Trusty gave
special recognition to Lago em-
ployees: "The startup of our
new units represents one of the
most significant | accomplish-
ments in Lago’s history. Most of
the credit for one of the most
successful and safest large pro-
ject startups in the history of
Standard Oil Company of New
Jersey must go to our Lago em-
ployees who accepted full res-
ponsibility for bringing this com-
plex project on stream. In ad-
dition to being new technology,
these facilities were also started
up under full computer control

— as far as we know, this is a
first for the petroleum industry.
From observing this startup,
our advisors and shareholders
feel our Lago employees are
second to none in the world in
their ability to operate and main-
tain complex modern petroleum
processing equipment. We are
Particularly proud of this ac-
complishment.”

The inaugural address was
subsequently delivered by Lt.
Governor Henriquez, who stres-
sed the importance of the new
plant for the economy of Aruba:
Said Mr. Henriquez: "The in-
vestment involved demonstrates
very clearly Lago’s confidence
in its people and the future of
Aruba. Considering the large im-
pact that Lago’s well-being has
on the economy of this island,
we can safely say that Lago’s
progress is Aruba’s_ progress
and also the progress of the
Netherlands Antilles.”

He further stated: "We should
be very pleased today, because
thanks to joined efforts of gov-
ernment, private enterprise and
labor, this important project was

we have proven again in the An-

After a bus tour of the HDS
complex and refinery, the guests
were taken to the HDS plant
site to witness the inauguration
ceremony.

Before unveiling the plaque,
Governor Leito congratulated
Lago and the people of Aruba
with this significant project.
Said the Governor: "The new
facilities constitute a substantial
contribution to the industrial ex-
pansion of this country and,
therefore, also to its general dev-
elopment... In this, as in many
other instances Lago, as a sub-

Spanish Lagoon Marine Water Sport
Center Opened in Buccaneer Style

History went back to 1700 on
Saturday, August 14, 1971, when
the second Dutch Marine Sport
Center was officially opened at
Spanish Lagoon. The opening
was performed in a very original
manner. The center itself is also
original in two ways. It is built
in fort style and floats on a
barge, 100 ft. long, 40 ft. wide.

At 10:30 a.m. the Commander
of the Dutch Marine Barracks,
Lt. Col. T. A. M. van der Vaait,
welcomed the guests and rel-
ated the history of the Sport
Center. The first officer, Major
of the Marines W. Doorman, and
Quartermaster J. A. van Spaan-
donck were a few of the spark-
plugs behind the project, assist-
ed by other officers, petty of-
ficers and several marines. The
Commander pointed out that
this sport center is closer to the
Savaneta Camp and is located

at a more sheltered area. The
civil personnel who worked on
this project included P. A. Dirksz
and F. S. Tromp.

Following his speech, the
Commander asked those present
to turn to the fort to witness the
official opening. A battle scene
that had taken place many times
in the 17th century in the Ca-
ribbean was re-enacted. A
schooner with a pirate flag atop
was approaching, which alerted
the gun crew of three ancient
guns installed at the fort. When
the ship came within firing
range, each gun was fired, with
each "'shot” falling closer to the
ship. The pirates soon hoisted
the white flag atop and sailed
to the fort to surrender, thus
opening the new water sport
center for the Dutch marines.

In addition to club facilities
and a spring-board, there is al-
so an airconditioned room be-
low deck with bunk beds for
four.

As a‘souvenir, a commemor-
ation plaque and a ship bell
from the 2nd World War were
presented to Commander van
der Vaart. Other recognition
plaques went to Quartermaster
van Spaandonck, and Mike Ha-
gedoorn and Ernest Kervel for
their assistance.

The official part ended when
the bugler sounded "Abandon
Ship". A special cold treat was
awaiting Quartermaster van
Spaandonck who was swung in
the air by Commander and of-
ficers for a first official "splash
down” into the sea at the center.
