Offshore WIND’s photo of the day: Wind turbine technicians carrying out maintenance work at Sheringham Shoal offshore wind farm.
Sheringham Shoal offshore wind farm comprises 88 Siemens 3.6MW turbines, which are 132m high. The turbines are located between 17 and 28 km off the Norfolk coast in England. The wind farm became fully operational in the summer of 2012.
Two Norwegian companies, Statkraft and Statoil, are owners of the wind farm through their joint venture company Scira Offshore Energy. During the construction phase of the Sheringham Shoal wind farm, Statoil led the development, and for the first year of operation the joint venture company Scira managed the daily running of the wind farm.
Statkraft took over operation and maintenance of the Sheringham Shoal offshore wind farm in January.
