Partrac has been awarded the metocean support services contract for the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm. Partrac will manage the supply, deployment, maintenance and delivery of metocean monitoring buoys over the duration of the construction phase of the wind farm.
Partrac selected three Triaxys wave buoys equipped to measure currents to meet the requirement for data provision. Real-time wave, current profile and sea surface temperature data is being delivered to a secure operational website. The data is used daily by the Rampion team to inform safety critical operations, such as heavy lifts, vessel to vessel transfers and operational planning on the Rampion construction site. The Rampion Offshore Wind project is being developed by E.ON, the UK Green Investment Bank and Canadian energy company Enbridge 13 kilometres off the Sussex coast.
