- Operations & Maintenance
Two unexploded bombs have been discovered at the E.ON-operated Rampion offshore wind farm.
The bombs, possibly from WWII, were discovered during the unexploded ordnance (UXO) surveys at the wind farm site off the Sussex coast, UK.
The items have been found within close vicinity of each other within the offshore site.
“Safety remains our highest priority and experts are currently determining the best course of action. Local people should not be concerned,“ E.ON spokesperson said.
E.ON has also outlined a 500 meter exclusion zone with marker buoy positioned to alert users to stay clear.
Offshore construction is unaffected by this find, the spokesperson added.
The Rampion Offshore Wind project is being developed by E.ON, the UK Green Investment Bank and Canadian energy company Enbridge.
