Jack-up vessels MPI Discovery and MPI Adventure carried out the work, which started in March; the turbines have 80m

Further construction and commissioning work will now continue on both the offshore and onshore sub-stations.

Rampion development manager Chris Tomlinson said: “We’re especially proud to have installed all 116 turbines ahead of schedule, in just over six months.

"We now look forward to the first generation of electricity later this year and to full operation in 2018.”
