TWP - Founded for Scottish Offshore Wind

Our founder companies have global renewables portfolios that stretch back to the world’s very first offshore wind farms. With a combined experience of 60 years in renewables development, construction, and operations, they have pioneered technologies and engineering solutions across the globe.

TWP’s rapidly growing team is based in Edinburgh with new roles planned for Orkney and Aberdeenshire too as our wind farms progress through the environmental assessments, consenting and planning phases, to construction and O&M.

In entering the Scottish market in 2022, we have pledged to:

  • Take a technology and procurement agnostic approach, which means we are exploring how we can optimise Scottish contact through our design, engineering, and procurement processes, ensuring that they are open to new local market entrants and SMEs, in line with our Supply Chain Development Statements (view the statements on the Ayre and Bowdun project pages)
  • Collaborate with the ScotWind developer community, academic institutions, and trade bodies to feed in our requirements for supply chain at an early stage
  • Commit to Scotland as the permanent location for our business headquarters

Supporting Scotland's Future Workforce to 2050 and Beyond

TWP is one of four ScotWind developers providing funding and support to a STEM Outreach Programme for early years, which is being implemented by the University of Highlands and Islands.

Our offshore wind farms will take almost a decade to scope, consent and build. We have set targets and ambitions for engaging Scotland's supply chain throughout the development and construction stages, helping to accelerate the transition of jobs from oil and gas to renewables. We are also looking ahead to the working lives of our wind farms, from their commissioning in 2032 to their eventual decommissioning, repowering, or lifetime extension (in 2060 or beyond, depending upon technological advancements). 

Who will develop, manufacture and operate the technologies we will need to manage these major maritime assets? Who will service and maintain the assets? And who will help to ensure we operate in harmony with a thriving maritime environment? Many of those who will be vital to the success of our wind farms are now in Scotland's nursery and primary schools. Ensuring that a wide diversity of young people in Scotland have the confidence to study and qualify in STEM disciplines, as well as being equipped to succeed, is vital for the future of our wind farms as well as Scotland's energy transition.

In September 2023, TWP gifted a training vessel to UHI Orkney's Nav School, ensuring that it will continue to train worldclass mariners from Orkney and the wider Highlands region for many years to come.
