Unique EPSRC-funded test facility will help technology go with the flow

Developers of marine energy devices will soon be able to benefit from a wave and current test facility being built in Scotland.

The facility's circular 25-metre pool will be able to simulate combinations of waves of up to 28 metres high and currents up to twelve knots at up to one-tenth scale - conditions that are currently unavailable to device developers and engineers.

With a working area of 15-17 metres and a depth of two metres, the tank will be able to mimic the normal and extreme conditions of coastlines around Europe.
