We also have the exciting opportunity to visit FloWave Ocean Energy Research Facility during the afternoon of Tuesday 23rd June 2015 as part of the event. Only a limited number of attendees will have this opportunity.

The University of Edinburgh’s FloWave Ocean Energy Research Facility houses a 25m diameter circular pool containing more than 2 million litres of water and is designed specifically for testing marine renewable energy technologies.

The fist of its kind in the world, this unique facility is able to accurately replicate real-sea conditions of waves and currents at scale for normal, challenging and extreme events for any offshore location. Enabling industry and academia to refie concepts, improve performance, and de-risk designs in a fully controllable and safe way at relatively low cost, FloWave will be a vital tool to help engineers harness the power of the sea.
