E.ON names Newhaven port as base for planned development

E.ON has announced that Newhaven port will be the operations and maintenance base for its proposed Rampion offshore wind farm if the development is granted approval.

The move could create up to 85 full-time permanent jobs with the majority being recruited locally. The base would contain office space, equipment storage and vessel mooring.

It would also see part of Newhaven port being modernised and redeveloped through E.ON’s investment in the facility, which would support the operation and maintenance of the proposed offshore wind farm.
