Commissioned in 2018, Rampion offshore wind farm is located in the English Channel, 13 kilometres off the Sussex coast and stretches from East Worthing in the west to Brighton in the east.

With an installed capacity of 400 megawatts, it is capable of powering almost 409,000 UK households or about half the households in Sussex.

It is operated and maintained from a specially built base in the Port of Newhaven.

Rampion comprises 116 turbines, each with an output of 3.45 megawatts. The turbine hub houses the wind turbine rotor and is 80 meters above sea level. The rotor diameter is 112 meters and each of the three blades is 55 meters long.
