Coal Stage conservation update

The high pressure water jetting of the tank is complete and we have drone footage of the works.

The remaining metalwork repairs should be complete by the Jubilee Weekend.  The tank has been surveyed and the surveyor identified an issue with the fabric of the tank which we are investigating.  The grit blasting equipment is due on site on 6 June to prepare the new steelwork for coating and we will also blast sample panels for the planned investigation work.  Once the investigations are complete and we have agreed a solution with the surveyor, we will start coating the interior and exterior of the tank.
