Rampion Wind Farm
One of the most eagerly awaited milestones for the Rampion
project was achieved in March, the installation of the first
offshore wind turbine. The turbine, located approximately 14
kilometres from shore and visible on the horizon, is the first of
the 116 MHI Vestas V112-3.45 megawatt (MW) models that will
together make up the south coast’s first wind farm.
The installation of turbines will carry on from now until late 2017,
when all the turbines are expected to be in place.
This type of sustainable energy fits with the UK Governments Approach to Global Goals for Sustainable Development which was released in March 2017.
Major facelift for Shoreham Beach gateway
The Ferry Road entrance to Shoreham Beach Local Nature Reserve will receive a much-needed facelift after Rampion agreed to fund a landscaping scheme to enhance this important footpath, which directly links Shoreham Town Centre to the beach via the pedestrian ferry bridge. The work will aim to ensure beachgoers have a positve welcome as they arrive at the beach, with a view of the wind farm straight ahead.
