ENERGY supplier E.ON will share details of the final design and construction plans for its £1.3billion Rampion offshore wind farm at a drop-in exhibition on Tuesday.

The 116-turbine farm was given the green light to start construction and preparatory work for the onshore cable route, required to take power from landfall at Brooklands Pleasure Park in Lancing to the onshore substation at Twineham, last month. Initial work will include ecological mitigation work later this month, prior to construction beginning on the underground cable route from late July.

We’re delighted to be able to announce our construction plans with our event in Lancing.

Chris Tomlinson, E.ON development manager for the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm, said: “We’re delighted to be able to announce our construction plans with our event in Lancing.

“This is one of four community events we will be holding to keep the community informed along the length of the cable route when we’ll have members of the project team available to answer questions.

“We look forward to seeing many local people at the exhibition where we’ll be able to share our plans for the offshore wind farm, the cable route and onshore substation.”

The exhibition will take place in Lancing Parish Hall, South Street, Lancing, at 8pm.

Parking is available behind the hall, accessible via Chester Avenue.
