Our facilities

WRc has a range of large scale facilities at its site in Swindon which are used in the development and testing of technologies. These are run and used by WRc for our own projects but can also be hired by the supply chain, academics and end users to develop and test technologies. 

The facilities include a flow loop rig, an open channel flume, a test pit facility with hydraulic rams to induce loads on buried pipes and a range of smaller testing rigs and systems.

WRc can offer a full and confidential testing and experimental service. 
Alternatively, our facilities are available to hire with full technical support.

Please use the contact form at the bottom of this page to discuss with us the best way we can help you.
