The Site

Our site on Prince of Wales Drive is over two acres in size and contains four gasholders that have reached the end of their operational lives.

Gasholders No. 4, No. 5 and No. 6 expanded and contracted as gas was pumped in and out according to demand. At the moment you can only see the columns that guided the ascent and descent of gasholders No. 4 and No. 5, with the tanks resting in a reservoir of water. This water seal prevented the gas from escaping. The blue gasholder, gasholder No. 7, is a rigid waterless gasholder through which the gas flow was regulated by a piston.
