Listing Description

The “Coastal and Ocean wave Basin”, is a large concrete construction filled with water (30 m x 30 m x 1,4 m deep) in which waves, currents and wind can be generated in a controlled manner. Scale models of offshore constructions, constructions for coastal protection, floating wind turbines, wave energy converters,… are placed in this wave basin (or wave tank) and their design and behaviour under the influence of waves, currents and wind is studied. The first experiments are planned to start in 2020.
