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.
The Workbox offers short, practical training for operational people and it encourages the sharing of experiences. The theme of this first Workbox: ‘How to prevent hand injuries’.
To warm up, each visitor was handed a pair of gloves. Gloves that Theo Baartmans, member of the Board of Directors, had held up in his baptism speech: “Take up the glove and let’s start with the Workbox!”
