Rampion offshore wind farm off the coast of Sussex has been given consent from the government to go ahead.
The developer is E.ON Climate and Renewables UK Rampion Offshore Wind Ltd. Onshore construction is expected to start in 2015 and the project including the offshore installation will take 4 years to complete. The developer estimates that generation will start in 2018/19. For the project to go ahead, developers will need to make a final investment decision, and either apply for a Contract for Difference or seek to accredit under the Renewables Obligation.
