Deborah Greaves is Director and led the development of the COAST (Coastal, Ocean and Sediment Transport) Laboratory, which represents a major enhancement in UK capability.  It was opened in October 2012 and was part-funded by ERDF funding through the South West Regional Development Agency (SWRDA), Department of Business, Innovation and Skills(BIS), Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), and the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) in partnership with the University of Plymouth.  The facility was designed to provide a unique capability for research and testing of wave and tidal Marine Renewable Energy (MRE) devices, at scales suitable for single device or array testing, as well as for offshore engineering, coastal engineering and environmental impact modelling.  The facilities are nationally and internationally leading in their capability and comprise:

  •  An ocean wave basin, 35 m long x 15.5 m wide x 3 m deep which is operable at different depths of water via a moving floor and which incorporates 24 flap wave-makers with the additional capability of a recirculating current both in-line with, and transverse to the waves
  • A coastal basin, 15 m long x 10 m wide x 0.5 m deep, that has moveable modular piston wave-makers and a recirculating current
  • A glass-sided sediment wave flume, 35 m long x 0.6 m wide x 0.8 m deep
  • A glass-sided tilting wave flume, 20 m long x 0.6 m wide x 0.8 m deep.
