Offshore Met Mast installation at the Proposed Rampion Wind Farm Site – Jack-up barge mobilized, piling complete and met mast completion due by 22nd April

The jack-up barge was mobilized last Friday 6th April and is currently on location offshore, but due to the lack of a suitable weather window this week, the installation of the Met Mast monopile foundation was delayed.  However, this work was completed this morning.  The current plan is to complete the met mast installation by 22nd April, subject to suitable weather conditions.

Background
E.ON is seeking to develop the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm located between 13km and 23km off the Sussex coast.  The site will help satisfy the UK’s need for renewable power and we estimate the site could generate more than 2,100 gigawatt hours (GWh) of electricity each year, enough electricity for the domestic needs of more than two thirds of the homes in the whole of Sussex.

As part of the development of the wind farm, a Meteorological Mast will be installed at the following location WGS84 50 41′ 16.891″N, 00 20′ 36.191″W.  The operation will take place from a jack-up barge and is likely to be completed and commissioned by 22nd April.

For safety reasons during the construction there will be an exclusion zone of 500m.

We are communicating this notice to all marine stakeholder contacts we have identified in the area.  A Notice To Mariners has been issued by our contract Fugro Seacore and warnings will be broadcast by the Coastguard during the period of piling and construction activity.
