Thistle Wind Partners (TWP)
Thistle Wind Partners (TWP) was founded by three global renewables pioneers – DEME, Qair, and Aspiravi – in 2020 as a business dedicated to Scottish offshore wind development.
Following our two successful ScotWind bids, we are now developing the Ayre and Bowdun offshore wind farms from our headquarters in Edinburgh.
TWP’s Ayre Offshore Wind Farm will contribute more than 1GW of renewable energy to the National Grid, which is enough to power more than 1.2 million households. Located to the east of Orkney and north of Caithness, the wind farm will be made up of floating foundation turbines. While we are currently in the early development phase of the project, we anticipate that construction will begin in 2029 with first power produced from 2032.
