Offshore and marine energy facilities

Equipment Type: Test facility

FaBTest is a pre-consented test area for offshore renewable energy, located within Falmouth Harbour and with easy access to the extensive port infrastructure. This 2.8km2 nursery facility is sheltered from the extreme sea conditions experienced at other test sites, and thus enables device developers to test components, concepts or full-scale devices in a moderate wave climate.

The site offers water depths of 20m-50m and seabed types of rock, gravel and sand, and its pre-consented status enables a fast, flexible, low risk and low cost solution for the testing of marine energy technologies, components, moorings and deployment procedures.
