From Brighton & Hove News

Rampion Offshore Wind Limited has announced that the project remains on schedule with the installation of the first turbine foundation due to start this week, despite adverse weather conditions disrupting enabling works to prepare the seabed.

Work to prepare the seabed for the 116 turbines began in September and the initial load of foundations arrived on site from the Netherlands last week. Construction of the first foundation in the northwest quadrant of the site is planned to begin this week.

The ongoing offshore construction work will be project managed from a temporary facility in Newhaven Port until the wind farm’s Operations and Maintenance Base is completed in 2017.
