FaBTest Area

Falmouth Bay Test Site (FaBTest)

Falmouth Harbour Commissioners have a lease with the Crown Estate for an area of seabed within our Statutory Harbour Authority Waters in Falmouth Bay. This lease exists to allow testing of devices related to renewable energy devices or associated equipment.

Testing of Devices

The Falmouth Bay Test Site (known as FaBTest) is leased from the Crown Estate. In the past FaBTest has been used to test Wave Energy Devices some of which have gone onto further technology readiness levels. We have now widened the remit of FaBTest to support testing of offshore renewable devices and ancillary equipment. We are also interested in exploring testing of autonomous and ocean monitoring technologies. 

 

If you have a device that you would like to test in Falmouth then please do contact us to discuss further.
