Nash Maritime has been commissioned to undertake a package of shipping and navigation studies for the Ayre and Bowdun offshore wind farms – two ScotWind projects being developed by Thistle Wind Partners (TWP).
 
The company will be providing input to project development activities, as well as undertaking the navigation risk assessments associated with the EIA, which also includes summer and winter vessel traffic surveys. The EIA is expected to be submitted in 2025 and both wind farms are expected to be operational by 2033.
 
Ayre Offshore Wind Farm, a floating foundation project, will be located 33km from the nearest inhabited point on Orkney, Deerness, and 36km from Kirkwall. The site is in the NE2 leasing zone, which covers an area of 200 km2. The project will be developed in two phases, ensuring that learnings on floating foundation installation from phase 1 (2029) are taken through to phase 2 (from 2030).
 
Bowdun Offshore Wind Farm, a jacket-type fixed foundation project, is located 44km off the coast of Aberdeenshire in the E3 leasing zone, which covers an area of 187 km2.
