Department of Energy (DoE)
In this project for the DoE, Triton Systems is focused on demonstrating system installation representative of offshore activities, studying of mooring spreads affecting anchor and turbine placement, and conducting demonstrations to generate further investment interest into HAGIS. Triton will bring HAGIS to a technology readiness level (TRL) to between 6 and 7 at the end of the DoE and other concurrent programs. Triton Systems is partnered with Glosten Associates and University of Rhode Island for this effort.
Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC)
In this program, Triton System will work towards improvement in the installation tool to lower the cost and improve the efficiency over Revision 1 of the installation tool. Triton will complete a full installation tool drive system that is subsea rated. Triton will also plan out a future offshore demonstration of the anchor and installation tool. Triton Systems is working with University of Massachusetts Amherst- Gloucester Marine Station to understand offshore demonstration requirements in the Northeast.
National Offshore Wind Research and Development Consortium (Consortium)
This effort focuses on the 3rd party certification of the anchor. Triton Systems will completed Stages 1-4 of the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) New Technology Qualification process. The program will include testing at the pilot-scale, conducting on-land capacity tests that can be correlated to subsea performance, and completion of engineering evaluations and risk assessment by ABS. Triton Systems is partnered with American Bureau of Shipping, University of Rhode Island and University of Massachusetts Amherst for this effort.
