Highlands and Islands MSP Emma Roddick visited Orkney Harbour Authority yesterday to discuss their Masterplan for Scapa Flow. The plan details their vision for a new multi-user deep-water pier and quayside facility at Scapa Flow, with the end goal of delivering a just transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy, and also a large-scale, wind-powered hydrogen production facility in Flotta.

Discussing the visit, Roddick said:

“I was so impressed to hear of the unique opportunities that Scapa Flow presents, it is the only area of its type in Scotland, and the scope for development is almost endless.

“The Orkney Harbour Authority had such refreshing new ideas to continue developing Orkney as a destination for clean energy.

“It was also great to hear that countries around the world are interested in working with OHA on their ambitious plans. I look forward to seeing the future of these exciting developments and what they mean for the people of Orkney.”
