Scira Offshore Energy Limited

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 the two Norwegian energy leaders Statkraft and Statoil 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. Statkraft will assume full operatorship of the plant in January 2014.
