Capstone Sails Into Marine Market
Capstone Turbine Corp., a clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, received an order for two C30 liquid natural gas (LNG) microturbines that will be installed on a Type C Tanker for inland shipping and will be certified by Lloyds Register of Shipping.
The two C30 LNG Capstone microturbines, which will be installed in May, will operate in an N+1 setting for main power supply on board. Heat from the microturbine exhaust will be used in an LNG vaporizer to provide fuel to the microturbine, as well as the main propulsion engines.
“The microturbines can easily integrate with current onboard equipment and increase onboard comfort because there’s no vibration and very low noise,” said Jim Crouse, Capstone’s executive vice president of sales and marketing.
Capstone microturbines can serve as a low-emission onboard energy source for propulsion or to power auxiliary applications. The clean and green microturbines can meet strict regulations without additional exhaust aftertreatment, the company said.
