The Triton platform system is adaptable to different frame sizes, suiting water depths from 25m to 90m deep. Additionally, it can be configured to suit different turbine types. diameters and numbers. Three basic platforms are being developed:
Triton SPower: 1 - 3 MW Depth: 25 - 40m
The small version ‘TS’ platform supports smaller turbines to suit the water depth - in the case illustrated 25 SCHOTTEL 50kW turbines. SCHOTTEL GmbH are using this platform for the first multi-MW deployment of their 50kW turbines.
Triton 3 Power: 3 - 5 MW Depth: 35 - 60m
The T3 medium frame version can accommodate the largest turbines being developed by third-party turbine developers, in a single row configuration.
Triton 6Power: 5 - 10 MW Depth: 60 - 90m
The T6 large frame version can accommodate the largest turbines being developed by third-party turbine developers in a multi-row configuration - thus uniquely able to exploit the full depth of deeper water tidal streams.
