Rampion Offshore Wind Farm
Vysiion, the managed technology solutions provider, and specialists in wind farm infrastructure and communications delivery, has been awarded a contract to support a 108km fibre link installation for the Rampion Wind Farm development.
The £1.3bn Rampion Offshore Wind Farm being built by energy company E.ON, alongside partners the UK Green Investment Bank plc (GIB), is estimated to provide enough energy to power around 300,000 homes each year. Based off the Sussex coast the wind farm has a target capacity of 400MW and is expected to be completed in 2018.
Carillion are the main contractors for the onshore connection, a project that will involve the installation of cable over a distance of approximately 26km from landfall near Shoreham on Sea to Bolney, West Sussex.
Vysiion, a company with an acknowledged expertise in wind farm communication and infrastructure support, has been awarded the contract to support Carillion’s delivery and will supply, splice and test a 108km (4 circuits) cable link from the onshore substation at Bolney to the beachhead.
Michael Grimshaw, Infrastructure Sales Manager at Vysiion comments: “The Rampion wind farm project contract is another example of how the team at Vysiion is able to support the infrastructure requirements of the UK’s wind power industry”.
“Throughout the UK and on a number of on-going wind farm developments Vysiion’s fibre, communications and infrastructure expertise is proving to be both an additive and assured element of the construction.”
