The TRITON S platform has been developed by TidalStream Ltd., a subsidiary of SCHOTTEL HYDRO. It is especially suited to deepwater offshore and carries a variable number of turbines. TRITON S offers a maximum power capacity on a single installation.
The system consists of a tether arm, two spar buoys and a variable number of cross arms. The entire structure is linked to a foundation (e.g. gravity-based or drilled pile) by a universal joint, allowing for pitching, rolling and self-alignment to the flow direction.
