Trident Energy is an independent developer of enabling technology for the offshore renewables industry. We have developed and patented a low cost, highly controllable generator that converts linear motion directly into electricity. This generator is positioned as the “Intel Inside” of the offshore renewable energy market, offering a generic, modular solution to reduce the costs of a wide range of host infrastructure.
Our technology can be used as the power take-off system in Wave Energy Converters (WECs) and some tidal stream devices. We are developing a small wave energy device, with our patented, proven generator inside, that attaches to offshore infrastructure to provide autonomous off-grid power. Generating electricity from the waves reduces the use of offshore diesel generators – reducing re-fuelling costs and minimising environmental risk from fuel spills. We are also working with partners to integrate our modular wave energy generation technology with next-generation offshore wind foundations.
