This report presents the results of the first study based on laboratory tests of the behaviour of the SSG pilot module in 3D wave conditions. This study was recommended already during Phase 2 of the Co-operation agreement between WEVEnergy AS (Norway) and Aalborg University, Department of Civil Engineering of which the present report is part of Phase 5. The tests have been realized at the Department of civil Engineering, AAU, in the 3D deep water tank with a scale model 1:60 to prototype and a reproduced bathymetry of the selected location at the time of the experiments. The overtopping rates of the individual reservoirs have been measured and the hydraulic efficiency calculated. The results are given in terms of overtopping rates for the 3 reservoirs and hydraulic efficiency.
