Partrac Ltd has announced the award of metocean support services for the Rampion Offshore Windfarm. Partrac has been contracted to manage the supply, deployment, maintenance and delivery of metocean monitoring buoys over the duration of the construction phase of the windfarm.
Partrac selected three Triaxys wave buoys equipped to measure currents to meet the requirement for reliable, robust data provision. Real-time wave, current profile and sea surface temperature data is being delivered to a secure operational website. The data is used daily by the Rampion team to inform safety critical operations, such as heavy lifts, vessel to vessel transfers and operational planning on the Rampion construction site.
Sam Athey, Director at Partrac, comments: “We are delighted to have been awarded the metocean support contract for Rampion and look forward to supporting the ongoing needs of this large offshore windfarm development; this extends and builds upon numerous baseline metocean surveys we have undertaken for offshore wind developments”.
