Fugro Lays Final Rampion Inter-Array Cable

Fugro is laying the final of 122 inter-array cables at the 400MW Rampion offshore wind farm off Sussex, UK.

Following the installation of the first 60 inter-array cables in the first phase of the project, Fugro Symphony returned to the site some 13 kilometres offshore in early April to install the remaining 62 cables.

Fugro Saltire is in charge of cable burial works during the second phase of the project.

The GBP 1.3 billion Rampion is being built by E.ON, the UK Green Investment Bank plc and Canadian energy company Enbridge.

The wind farm will comprise 116 3.45MW MHI Vestas turbines, the first of which was installed in early March.

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