Back in 2013, Edinburgh Designs commissioned the world’s largest wave basin for the US Navy: the 216 paddle MASK basin.
The Khalifa University Center for Robotics and Autonomous Systems was established in 2018 to conduct pioneering research in robotics relevant to industry and society.
Edinburgh Designs and Alghanem Trading & Contracting Ltd have built a complex Robotics Environment Tank with cross flow, waves and instrumentation gantry.
The tank was completed in late 2021 and features 32×1.8m paddles in a double ended arrangement. 12 flow ducts provide flow across the width of the tank. The tank is 8m wide x 18m long x 3m deep.

The world famous Slow Mo Guys featured the Edinburgh Designs designed and built Flowave TT tank at Edinburgh University in a fantastic video in 2019.
The video has now been watched an incredible 17 million times.

Edinburgh Designs were awarded the contract to build the highly prestigeous new Deep Ocean Basin at the National University of Singapore in 2016.
The tank was commissioned in 2020 in the height of the Covid-19 Pandemic and handed over to TCOMS in early 2022.
The grand opening was held in July 2022.
The Ecole Centrale de Nantes Wide Tank was originally commissioned in 2001.
The tank is 30m wide x 4.6m deep x 46m long and features 48 x 2.8m Hinge Depth Force Feedback Absorbing Paddles and an ED desiged parabolic beach.
In 2022, we comprehensively upgraded the system. The upgrade included: The Latest Njord Software New electrical cabinets, drive amplifiers, control cards, force transducers, limit switches and motors New mechanical consumable parts (belts, bearings, gusset, rubber parts etc.)
Edinburgh Designs have 8x500mm Pistons at the University of Split, Croatia.
Our project partner, Belmet97 installed the machines which were then commissioned remotely.
The brand new state of the art laboratory also holds a current flume and wind tunnel.
Edinburgh Designs have just installed a replacement high speed towing carriage for Virginia Tech University.
The existing Kempf & Remers carriage was removed to make way for a state of the art modern machine.
The system utilises the existing rails with an entirely new carriage chassis, drive system and rail buffers.
The new maritime laboratory at Hochschule Emden/Leer is built around a new towing tank by Edinburgh Designs.
The tank is 33m long and 3m wide and features 8×0.7m hinge depth force feedback flaps in a movable box module.
The Towing machine is capable of 5m/s and high acceleration rates.
The new laboratory is design to falilitate the validation of their state of the art CFD research.
A new single piston machine has been commissioned at the highly prestigious United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.
The machine was tested fully in Edinburgh Designs laboratory before shipment and was installed by USNA staff in their coastal flume.
Back in the 1980’s, Edunburgh Universities Professor Stephen Salter installed a single flap wavemaker for Professor Johannes Falnes at NTNU. It fits that Edinburgh Designs would be the company to replace this machine almost 40 years later.
The new machine is a single dry back force feedback flap paddle with a set of 8 wave gauges.
