Rampion Wind Farm - Operations

Both export cables have been laid.  Sections of the ROW export cable have been laid on the seabed (with some cable shallow buried) pending future cable operations, currently planned for mid-2017. As such, and until these future cable operations are complete, it is a requirement that the cable is TEMPORARILY protected and pinned in place using the rock bags.
