About this event

Conceived for cutting edge academic research into wave and tidal current interactions, the FloWave Ocean Energy Research Facility is also a tool for commercial developers to ensure their technologies and projects perform 'right first time' and are de-risked as much as practical before cutting steel or going offshore.

The facility operates under the Institute for Energy Systems, one of five multi-disciplinary research institutes within the University of Edinburgh’s School of Engineering, with the goal of increasing the Institute's internationally recognised expertise in marine energy device testing, evaluation and array deployment.

Containing more than 2.4 million litres of water the heart of FloWave is a circular concrete basin containing the 25m diameter, 5m deep wave and current simulation tank.
