Sugar beet processing JLP01_08_082654

WISSINGTON SUGAR FACTORY, COLLEGE ROAD, METHWOLD, KING'S LYNN AND WEST NORFOLK. Sugar beet in the polar beet silo at Wissington Sugar Factory, showing the conveyor bridge, shuttle convey and water jet system.
A sugar factory was first built at Wissington in 1925. Work began on the construction of a new refinery, five silos, and an extension to the existing factory in March 1968 for the British Sugar Corporation. The project also involved the realignment of railway sidings and was spread over three and a half years. Work was programmed to align with the sugar beet campaign: between September and February each year the focus of construction work shifted from the factory to the silos and other outer works, allowing the factory to open for the unloading and processing of sugar beet. At the time of its construction, the polar beet silo at Wissington was the only one of its kind in England. Beet was unloaded from lorries and entered the silo via the conveyor bridge, and was then distributed by the shuttle conveyor. The base of the silo formed concentric valleys with flumes leading to catchment troughs which carried beet to the factory

Skidding oil tanks JLP01_08_022844

STANLOW OIL REFINERY, STANLOW, ELLESMERE PORT, CHESHIRE. An oil tank being skidded along tracks by two Caterpillar D8 tractors fitted with winches at Stanlow Oil Refinery.
The contract for re-sitting storage tanks at Stanlow Oil Refinery involved the removal of four tanks 650 yards from their original position. Each tank weighed 300 tons and the journey involved one 30 degree turn and two 90 degree turns for each tank. The tanks also had to cross the 25ft wide pipe track, over which a steel bridge with concrete buttresses was constructed in preparation for the journey. The tanks were raised on rails and skidded by tractors fitted with winches
