Department of Energy (DoE)
The United States Department of Energy awarded Triton Systems’ the contract to develop a new anchoring technology that will reduce fabrication and installation costs of offshore wind farms and provide permitting benefits over current market solutions.
“Current floating offshore wind anchoring and mooring solutions are expensive and not economical at quantity for a wind farm.” – DOE
Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC)
MassCEC selected to support the development of Triton’s Anchor platform. The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) is a state economic development agency dedicated to accelerating the growth of the clean energy sector across the Commonwealth to spur job creation, deliver statewide environmental benefits and to secure long-term economic growth for the people of Massachusetts.
National Offshore Wind Research and Development Consortium (NOWRDC)
NOWRDC awarded Triton System’s additional support to advance the development of Triton's wind anchor. The National Offshore Wind Research and Development Consortium was established in 2018 when the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) was awarded $18.5 million from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to administer a public-private partnership focused on advancing offshore wind technology in the United States. NYSERDA contributed matching funds. The Consortium, a not-for-profit organization, supports cost-effective and responsible development of offshore wind to maximize economic benefit the United States. The Commonwealths of Virginia and Massachusetts and the States of Maine and Maryland also contribute to the Consortium’s funding.
Testing & Expertise for Marine Energy (TEAMER™)
TEAMER awarded Triton Systems access to pursue anchor testing in clay-based soils. The Testing Expertise and Access for Marine Energy Research program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and directed by the Pacific Ocean Energy Trust (POET) accelerates the viability of marine renewables by providing access to the nation’s best facilities and expertise in order to solve challenges, build knowledge, foster innovation and drive commercialization. Through this funding and support, Texas A&M University(TAMU) and the Offshore Technology Research Center (OTRC) are providing geotechnical numerical modeling and analysis of Triton’s anchor in cohesive soils.
