Triton gets additional funding for offshore wind energy anchoring system
Triton Systems, a technology incubator and developer of breakthrough products, has received funding provided by the National Offshore Wind Research and Development Consortium and the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) for offshore wind energy anchoring systems.
The Helical Anchor Group Installation System (HAGIS) is a low cost, silent, efficient, flexible anchoring system for small- and large-scale offshore wind farms. Among other benefits, HAGIS can be applied to any offshore wind platform or mooring configuration, and achieves breakthrough cost savings by lower manufacturing (~40% reduction) and installation costs (~25% reduction).

Additional investments totalling US$1.3 million are preceded by an original research grant received by the company from the Department of Energy for US$1.1 million. According to Triton, its patent-pending anchoring system works by using highly efficient helical anchors that provide significant benefit in holding capacity.
