For tidal current turbine and vessel testing, OMEY is developing a towing carriage that will run on OMEY's existing tank products.


Ten or more standard tank sections, two end caps and a towing carriage with drive creates a good test facility for hydrodymanic tests, such as resistance tests, wind and wall effects on ship models for students and industry.
