A day of celebration at Wind Farm Place
Scira Sponsorship Supports Local A Level Students
A formal celebration on Friday 19th April 2013 marked Scira Offshore Energy's move from the 'Prepare for Operations' stage of the Sheringham Shoal Wind Farm to its long term 'Operation and Maintenance' stage. Norman Lamb, the MP for North Norfolk and Minister of State at the Department of Health, formally opened Wind Farm Place, the purpose-built Operation and Maintenance base, which Scira moved into in February.
Fakenham College has received sponsorship from Scira Offshore Energy for the purchase of survey equipment for the use by A Level Geography students in studying coastal processes and landforms on the North Norfolk coast.

The world needs more energy, and in future ever more of its energy supply will need to be obtained from renewable resources such as hydropower, waves and wind. With around 40% of the EU’s entire wind resources available in British waters, it makes sense to harness the wind.
The 317MW Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm, located between 17 and 23 kilometres off the coast of North Norfolk in the UK, comprises 88 wind turbines and will generate around 1.1TWh of green energy per annum. This is enough clean energy to power almost 220,000 British homes. Compared to fossil fuels that is a reduction of around 500,000 tonnes of CO² emissions every year.
Sheringham Shoal is owned equally by Statoil and Statkraft through joint-venture company Scira Offshore Energy Limited. This project has drawn on know-how from Statoil’s longstanding offshore activities and Statkraft’s expertise in relation to renewable energy.
