Abstract

The Coastal & Ocean Basin (COB) wave tank facility is located in the Flanders Maritime Laboratory at the Ostend Science Park, Belgium. The COB and its associated testing services are designed (Troch et al. 2016) to facilitate the needs of the offshore renewable energy sector, coastal and offshore engineering community and offer the opportunity to academia, companies and government agencies, to test scale models under combined action of waves and currents in any relative direction, to develop innovative designs. The exploitation is managed by the consortium Ghent University, KU Leuven and Flanders Hydraulics. The COB is operational since March 2023 and has since then successfully completed its first projects on wave energy converters (WECFarm), wave diffraction study around a monopile (PhairywinD) and floating offshore photovoltaic islands (MarineSpots).
