Another set of wave hubs could be coming to Cornwall.

A plan is being revealed to let developers test new ways of generating power from the sea off Falmouth.

The people behind FabTest say it will help add new technology to the site already up and running off Hayle, although it will not produce power that will be fed into the national grid.

Claire Gibson, general manager at Wave Hub said, “FabTest is exactly what the industry has told us it needs and complements the growing marine energy assets and expertise we have in the South West region. It has been designed as a stepping stone to Wave Hub and will help device developers on the critical path to commercialisation.”

Mike Reynolds, Port Operations Director at A&P Group’s Falmouth operation, which has a growing marine renewables business, said, “FabTest is what our customers need to test and develop their devices and systems before looking at deployments further offshore, so this is very welcome. The potential to construct, deploy and service these devices is a key part of our strategy to grow our business in Cornwall. We expect FabTest to play an important role in realising this growth.”
