Photo of the Day: Where's the Wind Farm?

Click to enlarge (high resolution); Photo: Navingo BV Given the everlasting concern of visual impact that offshore wind farms might have, especially with regard to tourist destinations, Offshore WIND decided to feature this photo of the Sheringham Shoal wind farm, or rather the absence of it from the horizon. The wind farm comprises 88 Siemens 3.6MW turbines, located in the Greater Wash, between 17 and 23 kilometres (10 15 miles) off the Norfolk coast, north of the seaside town of Sheringham. The turbines are visible from the shore approximately 60% of the time, depending on the weather conditions, Scira, the company behind the wind farm, says on its website.

The photo was taken last week by one of our reporters from the deck of Tidal Transit s vessel Umoe Firmus 1 in Wells-next-the-Sea, some 13 miles (approx.

21 kilometers) from the Sheringham Shoal wind farm.

The wind farm, fully operational since 2012, also consists of two offshore substations, two 132kV subsea export cables of about 22km each, as well as a 21.6km onshore cable and an inland substation.
