Titan FWSS "Fresh Water Supply Systems"
Offshore Wind and Water Systems of Texas Inc
a Subsidiary of OWPST LLC
The Titan 200 was designed to meet the needs of the rapidly expanding
offshore wind energy industry both domestically and internationally. It began
with the realization that the need to move WPP’s to deeper waters was
forthcoming as a result of the mandates being issued for increased reliance on
renewable energy production. Our design was born from technologies that
have been used in the offshore oilfields since the 1950’s, primarily platform
designs and jack-up systems.
We have engineered an offshore wind turbine platform that solves the
deepwater dilemma and does so at a price point that lowers the per MW
installed costs for a wind farm development. In designing the Titan 200, we
realized there were applications for the technology beyond the simple
production of electricity.
The Titan 200 was designed to not only address the offshore wind energy
market but to offer a solution to a problem that has plagued governments and
disaster relief agencies for years. That problem is the ability to deliver clean
drinking water to coastal populations with chronic water shortages and those
recovering from the effects of a natural disaster.
The Titan Platform can be configured to act as a self sufficient, fully
operational water producing plant, serving the long term needs of a large
population. A five platform configuration including four platforms, each
powered by a 2MW turbine and housing 36 desalination units, and a fifth
platform acting as a control station, is capable of producing enough water to
serve the daily needs of a population of up to 99,000 people.
With ability to generate its own power, the Titan Platform mitigates the high
costs associated with current desalination techniques. Our calculations show
that a simple five platform construct can produce water at a cost of $.0006638 /
gal. vs. the $.0040882/gal. cost associated with conventional desalination
The Titan FWSS System is designed to produce 2,000,000 gallons of potable water per
day per platform. The systems may be designed to produce both water and power in
combination or alternately under high / low demand conditions. Water is transferred to
inland locations via pipeline and pumping systems located within the platform. Platforms
may also be outfitted with larger capacity turbines for larger output of electric power
while still satisfying the power requirements for water production. One (1) set of five
units can produce potable water in enough capacity to satisfy a population of 100,000
persons on a daily bases, by UN standards publicised. Platforms are manned 24/7 and
maintained and monitored via a single control platform that is outfitted with crew
quarters, galley and recreational areas. All monitoring is of the other system platforms
are via a central control room.
