Tough Steel Work

  • Russell B. Inserra, former project manager of Atlantic Diving Company, Inc. of Gloucester, Mass., has been appointed to the post of vice president, Engineering and Operations, by William T. Jebb Jr., president of Atlantic Diving Company.

    "Mr. Inserra has been project manager on some very tough jobs for us—a 5,500-foot polyethylene pipeline installation, an 18,000- foot 72-inch-diameter c o n c r e t e - coated steel pipe installation, and the installation of a 21-ton stainless- steel cofferdam in the active spent fuel pit of a nuclear power reactor," commented Mr. Jebb.

    "And, over the four years he's been with us, Atlantic Diving Company has become the largest underwater contracting firm on the East Coast." Mr. Inserra is a graduate of Columbia University with an engineering degree. He has developed proprietary techniques for ultrasonic testing of concrete under water, and has worked as a project engineer and diver on numerous underwater sewer and gas pipeline projects, cathodic protection installations, and pier rehabilitation projects.
