VBMS Brings Moby Dig to Dry Land

An excavator stranded while working on the Rampion offshore wind project in Sussex has been lifted and brought to dry land.

The 80-tonne excavator nicknamed ‘Moby Dig’ got stuck in one of the trenches in early April.

VBMS carried out the lifting operation and delivered the excavator to Williams Shipping’s marine base in Southampton.

Rampion is a GBP 1.3 billion offshore wind project owned by E.ON, the UK Green Investment Bank plc and Canadian energy company Enbridge.

The 400MW wind farm comprises 116 MHI Vestas 3.45MW turbines currently being installed some 13 kilometres off the Sussex coast.

The wind farm is expected to be commissioned in 2018.
