The History

Cumbrian Storage Vintage
The Cumbrian Storage terminal at Workington was originally built to store molten sulphur for local industry. This was used as a precursor for sulphuric acid, which was itself used to make phosphoric acid and phosphate cleaners for washing powders.

The facility was initially acquired to provide an import route for molten sulphur. More general chemical tanks were added to increase the terminal's capabilities and it was further expanded with the acquisition from Shell of a petroleum depot close to the dockside.
