TeesPort Tanker & Hartlepool Nuclear

Saturday, 25th March 2006 by

Here we can see what looks to be an oil tanker refuelling at Teesport near Middlesbrough in the UK. Teesport is the 2nd largest port in the UK and the 10th largest in Western Europe, and also happens to be extremely close to where I grew up! The imagery is surprisingly high resolution, you can make out the pipes going onto the ship and the onboard helipad.

Hartlepool nuclear power station is just to the north across the bay. This place used to freak me out as a child, living so close one of those “scary power stations”. I remember going for a visit with school and standing in the heat of the reactor room in awe.
