NINA at Work - February 2015

First Workbox presented at the naming ceremony of Freeway

On Friday January 16th, the naming ceremony for the hopper dredger Freeway took place in Papendrecht. Sponsor lady Truus Verschoor (catering manager) wished the ship and its crew a safe voyage, after which deafening drum rolls sounded from the ship - a spectacular performance by the crew. The first NINA Workbox was also presented on this day.
