Lyness

Lyness has the ideal location within the sheltered waters of Scapa Flow and its proximity to the Pentland Firth - premier location for the marine renewables industry for assembly and maintenance of renewable technologies. Lyness is also the major base for service and deployment of wave devices at Billia Croo. Lyness has a newly upgraded quayside and associated laydown space, while Scapa flow has an extensive natural harbour at an area of 125 sq miles. There are existing licenses in place for ship to ship transfer making it an attractive site for O&G activity as well as marine renewables.
