Stowen picked for Shoal works

A young offshore services company in the east of England has won a large new offshore wind farm contract.

Stowen Clean Energy has secured a maintenance contract with Equinor for its
Sheringham Shoal offshore wind farm off the North Norfolk coast, bringing more jobs to the Great Yarmouth-based business.

The company – which also has a renewables-focussed base at Lowestoft - will provide inspection and testing services and maintenance works for
Sheringham Shoal’s 88 turbines.

The win will lead to more full-time jobs in the group, which employs 48 people and has a turnover of more than £6m.

Kieron Ford, technical director, said the Equinor contract win would help to cement Stowen’s position as a major player in the global offshore renewable sector. 

“Working alongside Equinor is always an insight to the commitment they have to ensuring their assets exceed their life expectancy.”He said.

Committed to growing in the East of England, Stowen Clean Energy is training apprentice engineers on apprenticeships schemes at East Coast College to qualify as certified multi-skilled technicians with hands-on industry experience.

Sheringham Shoal is situated 17km off the coast of North Norfolk, and has been in operation since 2012. The project has a 316.8MW capacity and features 88 Siemens SWT-3.6-107 turbines which generate enough electricity to power 260,000 UK homes annually.
