Whalsay Ferries and Terminals (2009)

Following the STAG2 report in May it was advised that the following issues be progressed

  • Modelling for the North Voe terminal
  • Detailed design for all terminals
  • Explore funding mechanics
  • Establish lead time for procurement of new vessels
  • Consider future role of Whalsay Ferry and Terminal Working Group

On 25th June 2008 Shetland Islands Council approved £250,000 for the next steps in this project including tank testing of a new terminal at North Voe.

The mathematical modelling of performance of the proposal in North Voe is complete and the results were received on 8 September 2008. The Council’s engineers are reviewing the report and progressing matters in relation to physical modelling of the project.
