Geotechnical Investigation at Rampion Wind Farm – English Channel

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

Good afternoon all,

Please find attached a project outline and Notice to Mariners for the ongoing geotechnical investigations that Fugro are undertaking on behalf of E.ON Climate and Renewables for the proposed Rampion wind farm.

This particular Notice to Mariners concerns offshore geotechnical investigation operations from the vessel MV Markab. Fugro will be undertaking further offshore and nearshore geotechnical investigations as part of this project and these operations will be covered by separate Notice to Mariners.

Further to my previous e-mail on the 06/08/2013 please be advised that the MV Markab is now planned to remain on the Rampion wind farm project for the remainder of 2013 and into the early weeks of 2014. The exact date of the conclusion of the works by the MV Markab will be dependent on her progress and any weather downtime encountered.

Please feel free to contact me or my colleague Vicki Griffiths should you require any further details.
