HOP Engineers were commissioned by Rampion Offshore Wind (ROW) to design a new Operations & Maintenance facility in Newhaven Port, to service the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm. The facility will provide offices and welfare to the ROW Operations & Maintenance team, as well as an industrial warehouse for the maintenance of the wind farm. Working closely with the client, architects Corstorphine & Wright and Project Managers, we carried out the structural engineering design for the new steel framed building, and civil engineering design (externals and drainage) for the development. We worked from the planning stages through to tender and into the ongoing construction phase as the client’s engineering representative.
The 400MW Rampion project is being built by E.ON, the UK Green Investment Bank plc and Canadian energy company, Enbridge.
