Fugro to Install Rampion Cables

Fugro Symphony_HRFugro has been awarded a contract for the installation and burial of array cables at the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm.

The development in the English Channel, 13 kilometres off the Sussex coast, is being built by E.ON alongside partners, the UK Green Investment Bank plc.

According to Fugro, the engineering and planning will start immediately with installation being carried out in two phases in 2016 and 2017.

Fugro will lay and bury array cables with its construction and installation vessels Fugro Symphony and Fugro Saltire and using one of its two Q1400 trenching systems to bury the cables.

“The award of this contract has strengthened Fugro’s successful working relationship with E.ON and comes soon after finishing cable-lay and burial on E.ON’s recently completed Humber Gateway Wind Farm,” said Derek Cruickshank, Managing Director, Fugro Subsea Services Ltd. “Subsea installation and trenching systems are amongst Fugro Subsea’s specialist services and our focus on offshore energy is supported by a team of highly experienced onshore and offshore personnel.”

Construction is expected to be completed in 2018.
