Were thrilled for our clients at Newhaven Port as E.ON has today announced that Newhaven Port will be the operations and maintenance base for its proposed Rampion Offshore Wind Farm. The decision has been made following a rigorous assessment of both Newhaven and Shoreham Ports, with Newhaven coming up trumps!
We were part of the project team that produced the Newhaven Port Masterplan. The Masterplan emphasised the Ports aims to invest in infrastructure to establish clean technology and renewable energy, building on the success of existing local businesses and the current opportunities in offshore wind. With E.ONs announcement it looks as though the Port will be able to deliver just that, with economic benefits and employment opportunities for Newhaven Town.
We wish E.ON every success with the application for Rampion and look forward to Newhaven town and its residents profiting from the project.
