Enbridge building

Canadian energy company Enbridge has joined the Rampion offshore wind power project by acquiring a 24.9 percent interest. Enbridge will become one of three shareholders in Rampion Offshore Wind.

E.On will remain the controlling shareholder at 50.1 percent, with the UK Green Investment Bank continuing to hold a 25 percent interest.

Rampion is a 400 MW offshore wind farm project in the English Channel, to be located off the Sussex coast south of Brighton and remains set to become the first offshore wind farm off the south coast of England.

E.On will manage construction and operation of the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm. The project received the final investment decision in May 2015, started construction in September and is expected to be fully operational in 2018.

E.On and Enbridge are already partners in the Magic Valley wind farm located in Texas and the Wildcat wind farm in Indiana. Enbridge holds an 80 percent interest in both 200 MW onshore projects; both are operated by E.On.
