Triton T3 - Medium Platform 3 - 5 MW

Back Button 2

The T3 platform has been developed to accommodate a single row of large turbines, typically the 1MW turbines currently being tested throughout the industry. The T3 has all the advantages of float-out installation and maintenance access, but the single turbine row allows the transition between operating and maintenance positions to be reduced to 30 degrees

The Triton 3 is suitable for deployment in 35 to 50m water depths

Example Triton 3 - 3MW

The image shows a typical Triton 3 system with three turbines, each with 20m diameter rotor and 1MW rating, located in 35m water depth.

Although the rotors are shown with two blades only, three-bladed rotors can also be accommodated with no increase in draft in the tow-out position.
