On behalf of RPS, marine consultancy and survey company ABPmer will provide marine physical process assessments to support the consenting of the Ayre and Bowdun offshore wind farms.

Ayre is a planned floating wind farm off the coast of Orkney, on the east coast of Scotland, while Bowdun will be a fixed foundation wind farm off the coast of Aberdeen. Both projects are owned by Thistle Wind Partners.

ABPmer’s physical process specialists will model the wave, hydrodynamic, and sediment transport environments of the wind farm areas to understand how these factors could impact the planned wind farms, as well as how the wind farm designs could influence coastal processes, sediment transport pathways, and morphological features on the seabed and at the coast.

Consenting for both wind farms is expected to be completed in 2025, with construction planned to begin in 2029.
