One berth with pre-laid foundation and attachment points, and adjacent blank test area. If required, the device under test will be connected to a test support buoy via two umbilical cables; one for power transmission and the other for control
Anchor points: The pre-laid foundations on each berth comprise 5 gravity-base frames loaded with densecrete blocks for equipment moorings.
Test Support Buoy: The buoy can relay data by wireless technology. The buoys can also be equipped to supply the marine energy devices on test with power, simulated grid, and act as navigational aids.
