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.
