Fugro Seacore has installed the metrological mast, for the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm in the English Channel, 13 kilometers from the port of Shoreham-on-Sea, and acts as EPC contractor for the project.

Delivery, installation and commissioning were successfully carried out, and the mast is currently recording data for the E.ON Climate and Renewables team. The works included the installation of a lattice tower structure (the top of which was 110m above LAT) along with the associated telemetry and navigation aid systems. Fugro worked with a number of subcontractors to design and fabricate the monopile and electronic systems. The foundation comprises a 45.8 meters monopile which is 2.5 meters diameter and weighs 175 tons.  A 10 meter-tall topside piece incorporating the main working platform was bolted to the monopile offshore. The pile was transported in one piece, including floatation bungs, to the mobilisation berth in Newhaven where Fugro Seacore’s jack-up barge, Excalibur, lifted the pile into the water.
