In 2018, EOLINK has commissioned a nearshore FOWT prototype. This device is a 1/10th scale of the EOLINK +12MW concept.
35 sensors , realtime connected, permitted to demonstrate the numerical expectencies of the concept.
The proof of concept has been done in 2016 using a 1/50 scale model. Tank tests with misaligned wind-wave have been performed in IFREMER's wave tank.
