The Trip

This trip to the Rampion Windfarm lasts approximately 3 hours. The trip is aboard private charter vessel Defiance. We shall depart at 9am from the popular and accessible Brighton Marina. Defiance will endeavour to show you as much as possible in the timeframe, whilst observing the navigational restrictions around the site.

In the windfarm you will be given a history of the Rampion windfarm project, as well as information about the vessels and the construction techniques employed on this windfarm.

The return trip normally takes a route along the Brighton Seafront, passing close to the two piers.

The Rampion Offfshore Windfarm Construction

The Rampion Windfarm is about 7 miles offshore from Brighton at the closest point, stretching over an area of approximately 27 square miles. The windfarm was named after the round-headed rampion flower, also known as the Pride of Sussex and the county flower of Sussex.

Construction began in January 2016.  All 116 turbines have been installed and are now operational. Final works are now being made to have the construction fully complete by 2019
