Curved Ocean Basin Wave Tank at the LIR NOTF Ocean Test Facility near Cork, Ireland

80X 0.7m hinge depth paddles at University College Cork.

This is one of four tanks that make up the specialist LIR NOTF Ocean Test Facility at the MaREI Center for Marine and Renewable Energy.

The tank is 25m x 18m x 1m deep and has a movable floor in its central section.

The floor can be raised above the surface of the tank to allow quick and easy model setup.

The floor can then be lowered to give a total of 2.4m depth. Two sides have ED designed slatted beaches made from recycled plastic.
