What the proposed Scapa Flow Floating Container Storage and Transhipment Terminal system did was provide a floating transhipment capability, putting a storage and handling buffer in between vessels. A couple of design concepts were considered, taking into account container . The sheltered deep water of Scapa Flow is a major strategic asset. In collaboration with HIE and with the involvement of the Crown Estate, Orkney Islands Council is pursuing the potential for a container transhipment terminal at Lyness on Hoy.
