Construction underway on new UCC Beaufort Laboratory

Construction is underway on the new Beaufort Laboratory which will house University College Cork’s new National Ocean Test Facility.  Edinburgh Designs is supplying 16 2.5m flap wavemakers for a deep water flume, along with a hydraulically driven movable floor, for the main deep water basin.  A coastal flume will be fitted with 8 0.7m flap wakemakers, also supplied by Edinburgh Designs.  The third basin, the Ocean Wave Basin, will have wave generation provided by the relocated 40 x 0.7m flap wavemaker originally built by Edinburgh Designs for UCC in 1993 .
