Fugro Saltire trenching and cable lay vesselFugro has secured a contract for the installation and burial of 122 array cables at the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm being built in the English Channel, 13 kilometres off the Sussex coast, by E.ON alongside partners, the UK Green Investment Bank plc.

The engineering and planning will start immediately with installation being carried out in two phases in 2016 and 2017. Fugro will lay and bury the cables with its construction and installation vessels Fugro Symphony and Fugro Saltire using one of its two Q1400 trenching systems to bury the cables. The array cables will be pulled in and laid between the wind turbines and the offshore substation, where the power is then transmitted onshore. The Rampion Offshore Wind Farm will consist of 116 turbines, each with a generating capacity of 3.45MW. Construction is expected to be completed in 2018.
