Rampion Wind Farm
Offshore Windfarm, Sussex
From the outset, E-On’s proposal for a 116 turbine offshore wind farm faced a number of challenges. The company’s local profile and reputation required strengthening and the community were resistant to offshore wind.
Through a number of different initiatives, our team were able to proactively engage with key stakeholders to get E-On on the front foot. We set up a number of Project Liaison Groups to act as a forum for members of the local community, including businesses and politicians. We held various local information roadshows to address their concerns. And we organised a competition across the local schools to rename the project so that it was in keeping with the local area.
The project was a success and the offshore Rampion wind farm is currently under construction.
