Big offshore wind contract for growing young east coast business

A fast-growing 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 new renewables-focussed base at Lowestoft – will provide inspection and testing services and maintenance works for Sheringham Shoal’s 88 turbines.

The contract for NDT (non-destructive testing) and survey of the turbine monopiles is a significant win for Stowen Clean Energy, founded in 2016 as a diversification for Stowen Group’s successful oil & gas business.

The win will lead to more full-time jobs in its growing 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.”

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.
