Thanks to the good weather conditions and swift installation and grouting operations, Scaldis SMC successfully installed the Rampion OSS jacket on the south coast of England well ahead of schedule.

Operations included turning the jacket while it was suspended and partially submerged. After the 90 degrees rotation, the 1000 tonne jacket structure was placed on the sea bottom, followed by the usual piling and grouting activities.

Marine mammal observation, as well as passive acoustic and noise monitoring, took place during the piling activities to ensure environmental standards were met.

HLV Rambiz will return to E.ON’s Rampion OWF field to install the OSS topside that is currently being fabricated by Babcock.
