Description

RSK have been contracted by E.ON to produce an Environmental Statement for the proposed
Rampion Offshore Windfarm in the English Channel, offshore of Brighton. It is currently proposed
that the electricity export cable will make landfall in the intertidal area between East Worthing and
South Lancing.
An ecological survey was conducted on the 18-19th May 2011 to provide baseline environmental
information on the intertidal landfall area for the export cable of the proposed Rampion Offshore
Windfarm. The survey comprised a walkover survey of habitats and features of interest present,
and sampling of sediment for laboratory analysis of benthic communities, particle size, and
chemical contamination. Sampling was conducted on the low water of a Spring tide.
