Wells Harbour Has Great Future

sheringham shoal wind farmAn historic agreement was signed by the Wells Harbour Commissioners and Scira Offshore Energy Ltd, the developer or the Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm on 23rd June 2009.

The agreement confirms that Scira will use Wells Harbour as its operational base for the wind farm for a period of up to 50 years. As a result a new commercial jetty with pontoons will be constructed SW of the Lifeboat House. Added to this the channel from the new jetty to the harbour mouth will be deepened to allow greater access to the jetty by a longer tidal window.

This marks the start of a new future for Wells harbour in terms of access for all users and has potential economical and social benefits to Wells-next-the-Sea.

The Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm is being developed by Scira Offshore Energy Ltd which is jointly owned by Statoil-Hydro and Statkraft. Statoil-Hydro will be the operator for the project during the development.

The jetty is expected to be completed by summer 2010.
