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.
The first of 116 wind turbines at the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm have begun to be installed, with the installations set to continue throughout 2017.
For further information on the first turbine installation, please read our latest press release here

NOTICE: Please could all sea users make themselves aware of the increasing intensity of high-speed construction craft off the coast, in our 'Guidance for Third Party Vessels on Rampion CTV Operations'
We can confirm that the elevated excavator, which had been working off Lancing Beach is currently immobilised and we are finalising plans to retrieve the vehicle.
For safety reasons a guard vessel is on site and buoys are placed around the excavator. The diesel on board used to run the engine has 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
