this blog’s title says “micro” but the focus of this post is the opposite, gigantic. we have a huge gasometer. it is standing by the sea at tin wan, the towngas aberdeen depot.
couldn’t find much info of this site or structure, not even from the utility company’s website. luckily eventually managed to spot an annual report of the company dated 2015 which contains one mention. this is one of the venues that the company has conducted an emergency drill that year.
i truly adore such structure. the size and the mechanic existence for one. the design is supposed to be secured and sealed but one can easily has this thread of thinking that what if there is a leakage or an explosion … last but not the least the round shape and lines of the work.
