Power boat tank testing

The Wolfson Unit has been conducting towing tank tests on high performance vessels for over 40 years. For a given towing tank test programme, a suitable test facility is chosen from those available within Europe. The final choice depends upon the tank size, carriage speed, wave making facilities and availability. Facilities are hired to the Wolfson Unit with only a carriage driver. All towing and measuring equipment is designed, built and operated by Wolfson Unit engineers, who also conduct the data analysis and prepare the report.
