The pressure vessel on the back of the lorry resembles one of many installed at the construction of the methane terminal back in the early 1960’s (I used to work there),and isn’t the first word on it “METHANE”?
It says Methane Plant for Canvey Island
Ian is correct, the vessel is one of two Methane Evaporators used for turning the liquid gas back to a vapour.
