European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) Ltd - Fall of Warness Tidal Test Site

The Fall of Warness tidal test site is located to the west of the island of Eday. The site consists of 8 cabled test berths at various depths in an approximately 8km² area.

EMEC hold a Section 36 consent under the Electricity Act 1989, which covers the generation of electricity for the whole of the  Fall of Warness site. This simplifies the application process for developers testing devices in this area and allows consent conditions to be applied to the whole site, as well as on specific developments.

The Fall of Warness site has 8 berths which are occupied by various different projects.  Details about the current and previous occupants of the berths can be found below.
