The Department does not hold a list detailing where components of the Rampion wind farm will be manufactured or which aspects of the supply chain will be UK manufactured.

However, recent announcements by EON have stated that: Carillion has been awarded a contract to design, supply and install 160km of 150kV cable and associated jointing accessories; Babcock International has won a contract to design, engineer and construct the 2500-tonne offshore substation platform topside and jacket; and the operations and maintenance building will be located in the port of Newhaven.

As mentioned in my previous answer, we are working closely with EON to ensure that UK supply chain companies have the opportunity to compete for contracts that have yet to be awarded.
