Now the Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm is fully operational about 60 permanent jobs have been created, and further positions will be recruited in the coming months, making the anticipated number directly employed around 60 positions. All these positions are based at the purpose built Operations and Maintenance base, Wind Farm Place, located three miles south of Wells-next-the-Sea. Upcoming vacancies will be advertised on this page of the Sheringham Shoal website, as and when they arise.
Turbine manufacturer Siemens is responsible for the maintenance of the turbines for the first few years of operation, and it recruits service technicians locally. Successful candidates undergo intensive training at Siemens Newcastle and then on the job training at existing wind farms around the UK.
