The crew transfer vessel will operate from Wells-next-the-Sea, 25 miles from Sheringham, serving Scira Offshore Energy's wind project for at least 18 months.

Tidal Transit took delivery of the Tia Elizabeth in March 2013 and it features a rear crane.

The vessels are designed for use by companies involved in the planning, development and construction of offshore wind farms in the Greater Wash, off the Lincolnshire coast, and the North Sea.

Tia Elizabeth was built by Spain’s Mercurio Plastics, the same boat builder that built Tidal Transit’s two sister vessels, Ginny Louise and Eden Rose.

Sheringham Shoal is located between 17 and 23 kilometres from the shore and comprises 88 Siemens wind turbines.

Scira Offshore Energy Ltd is a joint venture company owned 50/50 by Norwegian energy companies Statoil and Statkraft which have divided responsibility for operation of two jointly owned north Norfolk offshore wind projects, Sheringham Shoal and Dudgeon offshore wind farm.

Statkraft will take responsibility for the operations and maintenance of Sheringham Shoal on 5 January 2014.
