Seven Sisters becomes wind farm sightseeing ship for a day

At DFDS we will go to great lengths to satisfy our customers and make them happy. Sometimes, that means taking our beloved vessels out of their usual route for a change of scenery, and to be of service for special events and occasions. This time, Seven Sisters, which operates on the Dieppe – Newhaven route on a daily basis, was the gathering point for the inauguration of the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm near Newhaven Harbour.

The crew of Seven Sisters gave a warm welcome on board to Rampion’s 324 guests, consisting of main suppliers, customers and local politicians. They enjoyed the refreshments and delicious food served at this important event, while sailing on a three-hour trip around the wind farm.

Matthew Swanwick, Project Director at Rampion, says: “It was important for us to show gratitude to all our local stakeholders who were involved in making the wind farm happen, so it was fantastic to give them the chance to get a close-up of the result. On behalf of Rampion Offshore Wind Farm, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to DFDS and the crew of Seven Sisters for enabling a superb celebratory tour and offering excellent and friendly service. The trip was simply perfect!”

Jean-Christophe Dambrine, Head of Onboard Services, says: “It was a great success. Organisers and guests thanked the crew for their hospitality. I would like to congratulate the Seven Sisters team for this fantastic performance. The buffet in particular was very much appreciated.”
