Triton T6 ballasting system

The Triton T6 six rotor platform in the heavy maintenance mode

The Triton system enables turbines to be mounted on semi-submersible spar buoys secured to a seabed anchorage by a rigid swing-arm tether. This gives a platform that can be towed to the site already assembled, then deployed to its operating position by simple water-ballasting.


The surface-piercing element is always accessible and contains key electrical and control items.

Full access is gained by de-ballasting, which brings the system to the surface when required for annual maintenance – eg for defouling – or repair.
