The tank measures 45m wide x 60m long and has wavemakers on two sides.
Deploy-able and stow-able beaches run the length of the long side of the tank.
Static concrete beaches run the short side.
A movable floor allows water depths of up to 12m and can raise to the surface to facilitate experiment setup.
A 10m diameter central pit with raisable turntable reaches a full depth of 50m.
52 Current generators move the water across the entire tank width.
An X-Y carriage spans 53m and provides a stable, man ride able platform for experiments.

All tank equipment will be controlled from one user interface as an integrated system.
