About The Event
Gasholders recording the end of an era
Celebrate history and look towards the future.
Join us in commemorating 200 years of gas history with this unique conference looking at the bygone era of the gasholder.
At one time, these massive containers held the gas that powered our towns and villages, but now the last of these ‘gasometers’ are being decommissioned.
Our one-day event will explore the great history behind these structures whilst also looking at the technological advances which made them obsolete.
Supported by National Grid, Northern Gas Networks, Scotia Gas Networks and Wales & West Utilities the conference will examine:
- Two hundred years of gas history and the role gasometers played in industrial Britain
- The painstaking process required in decommissioning and regenerating the country’s gasholders
- Advances in 21st century gas storage
If you are passionate about the history of the gas industry, if you work in the demolition and decommissioning of gasholders, or if you want to learn more about advances in gas storage, this event will put you in touch with the experts in these fields.
Bookings for this event are no longer available.
