Rampion has received many enquiries from people interested in visiting the wind farm.
We do not currently have plans to organise public boat trips ourselves as our resources are focussed on completing the construction of the wind farm. However a number of local charter boat operators are offering the opportunity to get a more close up view of the project and they are also aware of the safety requirements. For a full list visit the charter boat operators page.
Due to the fact there are on-going construction works, a 500-metre safety exclusion zone is in place.
Here is the Safety Exclusion Zone notice for downloading if required.
Anyone intending to head out towards the wind farm should check the safety exclusion zone details and also remain clear of any of the construction or working vessels.
A Brighton-based Visitor Centre is now being planned, and more details will be posted on the website as its progresses. This will enable local people, schools and visitors to the area to learn more about wind energy and the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm in one convenient location.
For a first hand experience of a charter boat visit to the wind farm, read Christian Donlan’s article published in the New Statesman here.
