Floating Test Facility

Our main test facility is located on an inland barge. Tests can also be conducted in the workshop ashore. The barge gives us maximum flexibility to make use of ambient marine, brackish or fresh water for testing purposes in large volumes of water.


To conduct analyses, MEA-nl has it’s own lab in the port of Den Oever, where we conduct hydro- and microbiological analyses. For shipboard tests we will take our equipment to the vessels to do analyses on site.Ā
