E.ON has revamped the Scroby Sands Offshore Wind Farm Visitor Centre in Great Yarmouth, the UK.
According to the company, the centre now provides visitors with new visuals containing interesting facts about the Scroby Sands wind farm, as well as the company’s other offshore wind projects in the UK, and allows them to learn more about the site and renewable energy.
The centre also consists of an educational area, where local schools are able to learn about energy outside the classroom, E.ON said, emphasizing that the interactive learning environment supports the national curriculum and is designed to help encourage young people interested in pursuing a career in the energy industry.
“Over the years the building has gone through a number of redesigns and this new look is part of our commitment in supporting the local community. We hope it offers the chance for visitors and local people alike to come and learn about offshore wind and the positive impact it has had on the area of Great Yarmouth,” Peter Lawson, Scroby Sands Site Manager at E.ON, said.
The 60MW Scroby Sands wind farm comprises 30 turbines located some 3km off the coast of Great Yarmouth. It is one of the UK’s first operational commercial-scale offshore wind farms.
