Following the accomplished offshore wind power projects Humber Gateway and Amrumbank West E.On continues to battle the elements.

The company has announced that the first wind turbine foundation for Rampion project in the UK will be installed this week. The project remains on schedule, despite adverse weather conditions that already disrupted enabling works to prepare the seabed for the 116 turbines.

The 400 MW project supports E.On’s strategy to concentrate on renewable energy, customer solutions and energy grids. Rampion is located in the English Channel and being built by E.On, the UK Green Investment Bank and Canadian energy company Enbridge.

The development is expected to supply the equivalent of up to 300,000 homes and to reduce CO2 emissions by up to 600,000 tons a year.
