Triton is a tidal  energy platform system being developed by TidalStream Limited. It offers tidal turbine developers a more cost effective deployment and operation system for their turbines than can be provided by single installation systems.


The platform is adaptable and a range of turbine types can be accommodated, providing the installation and maintenance base that will reduce costs and enable safe operating conditions.


Explore this site to learn more about how Triton achieves this.
