Not sure how to help mate but check out this website:

A triangle with both natural number side lengths and natural number area is called Heronic after Heron, Hero of Alexandria. The area of Heronic triangle is always a multiple of six.

I made a list of Heronic Triangles up to sides 10,000 for another answer. From there, here are the Heronic triangles whose areas equal three times their perimeters. The list looks like it has a≤b≤c.a≤b≤c. Only one area appears twice, and that’s for non congruent triangles. so none of these are congruent. The answer is at least 45 such triangles. I’m thinking it’s infinite. They get pointier and pointier but I bet they just keep coming.

Here are the 45 on my list:
