It's usually the massive storage facility at Inchindown that gets the news, but this about another wartime storage facility.

Hoy, Lyness, Royal Naval Oil Terminal | Canmore
Quoted Text
A deal has been done which could see the oil tanks at Lyness in Hoy brought back into use.

The underground facility was built just before the start of World War Two to protect stores of oil from German air raids.

Now Scapa Flow Asset Management will carry out feasibility work to see if they can be used as a distribution hub for low sulphur marine gas oil.

The company said their capacity and location could make them ideal.
