The FloWave Ocean Energy Research Facility

The FloWave Ocean Energy Research Facility is a unique wave and current test basin, based at The University of Edinburgh’s King’s Buildings campus. Since 2014 it has served the offshore renewable energy sector, testing technologies and concepts for the wave, wind and tidal sectors and beyond. Serving both academic and industrial user groups, the FloWave team also actively participates in advancing the state of the art of physical model testing and feeding lessons into the wider sector.

This tour will demonstrate the facility in operation, and allow visitors to meet the team to learn about FloWave projects from the past, present and future.
