Rampion OSS Topside Touches Down off Sussex

Scaldis has installed the 2000-tonne offshore substation topside on the 400MW Rampion offshore wind farm some 14 kilometres off the Sussex coast.

The topside was installed by the heavy lift vessel Rambiz.

Babcock International Group was in charge of engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the 2,500 tonne offshore substation topside and jacket for Rampion.

Babcock built the Rampion offshore substation, with the Schiedam-based HSM Offshore fabricating the jacket and the piles under a subcontract.

Back in January, Scaldis installed the jacket for the offshore substation.

The first of 116 MHI Vestas 3.45MW wind turbines was installed in early March.

The GBP 1.3 billion Rampion offshore wind farm project is owned by E.ON, the UK Green Investment Bank plc and Canadian energy company Enbridge.

The project is due to be completed and operational in 2018.
