Rampion Out of Action

first_imgThe Rampion wind farm offshore Sussex, UK has been shut down due to a fault on the wind farm’s high voltage electrical distribution system, a spokesperson from the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm confirmed to Offshore WIND.According to BBC, the 400MW wind farm has been shut since 26 October.”We are in the process of repairing this and will have the wind farm up and running again as soon as possible,” the spokesperson said.The shutdown is not expected to affect the supply of electricity to the local area as the wind farm is connected to the High Voltage National Grid, the spokesperson said.”National Grid are responsible for managing the supply of electricity and ensuring that there is no loss of electricity supply to the local area as and when the windfarm is shutdown,” the spokesperson said.“These are complex repairs and it is critical that they are carried out correctly which will take some time, so it will be a few weeks before we return to normal operation.”Rampion’s 116 MHI Vestas 3.45MW turbines were officially commissioned in November 2018. All of the wind farm’s turbines were put into operation in April 2018.last_img read more
