Rampion Wind Farm Tours

Our very popular Rampion Wind Farm Tours will take you offshore from Brighton to the location of the Rampion Site, so named after the 'Pride of Sussex' the Rampion flower our county flower. The site comprises of 116 massive wind turbines which each sit on top of a foundation fixed into the seabed. Standing at a height of 140 metres from the tips of the 55 metre long blades attach to the turbine nacelles weighing in at an incredible 163 tonnes, almost as much as the towers weigh. Each turbine is rated at 3.45 megawatt, with an installed capacity of 400 megawatts (MW), the area generates 1,400 gigawatt hours (GWh) of green power each year, equal to the amount used annually by around 350,000 homes, or almost half the houses in Sussex
