Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm developers Scira Offshore Energy charters ‘Eden Rose’ one of Tidal Transit’s offshore wind farm support vessels

Scira Offshore Energy, the company developing the UK’s Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm  with its 88 turbines situated between 9-17 miles off the coast of North Norfolk, is to charter Eden Rose, one of Tidal Transit’s innovative wind farm personnel and equipment transfer boats, to service the site development.

The Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm is the third major offshore wind energy project to be supported by Tidal Transit vessels. Immediately after her arrival in the UK from Spanish ship builder, Mercurio Plastics, Eden Rose went into operation for RES Offshore in Grimsby, servicing meteorological masts 60 miles out into the North Sea, whilst Ginny Louise is currently contracted to the SSE and RWE npower renewables partnership; this partnership is developing the 140-turbine Greater Gabbard Offshore Wind Farm off the Suffolk coast.

Both vessels are state-of-the-art, high-specification, purpose-designed vessels for use by companies involved in the planning, development and construction of offshore wind farms in the Greater Wash and southern North Sea.

Einar Stromsvåg, General Manager of Scira Offshore Energy, said: “Here at Scira, we are very pleased to welcome such a high speccification vessel to our fleet, and are delighted that we can source this vessel from a local company . Tidal Transit is a fantastic example of a Norfolk based company which has positioned itself as part of the supply chain for the developing wind industry in this region.”
