FaBTest

A leading-edge resource for wave energy device testing

Close to the port of Falmouth, FaBTest provides wave energy device developers with a near shore, low cost nursery facility to test components, concepts and full-scale devices in a moderate wind and wave climate.

FaBTest’s pre-consented status, which allows for up to three devices to be deployed concurrently, aims to provide a fast, flexible low risk and low cost solution for the testing of marine energy technologies, components, moorings and deployment procedures. The site offers water depths of 20m-50m and seabed types of rock, gravel and sand.

FaBTest has a 2.8 sq km test area which is located within Falmouth Harbour, between three and five kilometres offshore. This means that businesses using FaBTest for device testing can have excellent access to the test area and can benefit from the nearby marine facilities at Falmouth Docks.

With data collected by the University of Exeter, FaBTest is another example of the superb resources available to businesses at Marine Hub Cornwall.
