Rampion offshore wind farm - E.ON

Current Status

Construction of the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm is now well underway.

The project reached a significant milestone in November 2016 as installation of  all 116 turbine foundations was completed on schedule. The yellow transition pieces have also been fitted onto the foundations and now sit approximately 20 metres above sea level ready to hold the turbines. 

July 2017

We have progressed well since the first turbine was installed in April of this year, with 80 of 116 wind turbines at the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm having been installed, with the remaining works set to continue throughout 2017.

Latest Information

Elevated Excavator:

We can confirm that the elevated excavator, which had been working off Lancing Beach, has now been successfully removed from the foreshore.

For safety reasons a guard vessel had been on site and buoys were placed around the excavator. The diesel on board used to run the engine had also been removed.

The vehicle had completed its work to backfill the cable duct trenches that were dug along the sea bed last year for the cable and there is no impact on the construction schedule
