Trident Energy is an independent developer of enabling technology for the offshore energy industry. The company’s core technology is a patented low cost, direct drive linear generator. Because the generator can be controlled in real-time, it can be tuned to optimise the generation of electricity from the motion of each individual wave. The company has manufactured and tested a full-size generator and proven the control system. The generator produces grid-compatible power that can be integrated into existing auxiliary power systems, such as those on wind turbines and on oil and gas platforms. The generators are modular and scaleable and can be configured to suit the PowerTake Off (PTO) requirements of a wide variety of Wave Energy Capture )WEC) devices.
