Babcock International Group, the UK’s leading engineering support services company, has successfully completed a major milestone of its contract to construct a 1,100 tonne, 42-metre long, offshore sub-station jacket for the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm - the first major wind farm contract secured from its Rosyth base - with work progressing on two further wind farm contracts at the site.

The two-year Rampion contract involves the engineering, procurement and onshore construction of the 400MW sub-station topside and jacket, managed by a specialist team at Rosyth. The jacket, now installed at the offshore site by other contractors on behalf of Rampion is ready to receive the near 2000 tonne topside structure, which is due to load out from Babcock’s Firth of Forth facility in 2017.

The contract involves a variety of skilled workers including welders, steel workers, structural engineers, electrical engineers, procurement specialists and integration specialists to name but a few. The current phase of the project sees Rampion’s electrical contractor installing and commissioning the transmission equipment prior to the Site Integration Test. Willie Watson, Operations Director of Energy & Marine Services at Babcock International Group, said: “The construction of the sub-station jacket for the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm has been a significant project for our Babcock Rosyth base and our first wind farm project here, utilising the wealth of engineering, project management and procurement skills and experience that we have developed over many years.

We are pleased to see the work come to fruition with the successful installation of the jacket and look forward to continuing our relationship with Rampion and its other contractors, on delivering the remaining milestones for this project.”
