Capstone Powering Asian-Pacific Market

Posted on April 4, 2012

Capstone Turbine Corp. continues to expand its reach into the Asian-Pacific market with the sale of a Capstone C1000 unit that will be installed in a combined heat and power (CHP) application at a progressive farm in Singapore.

N&N Agriculture Pte Ltd., one of Asia’s egg farms, purchased the C1000. The power package, which is fueled by biogas generated from animal waste in an anaerobic digester, will generate low-emission electricity and thermal power, Capstone said.

The electricity produced by the C1000 will power the farm’s six large climate-controlled layer houses and two grower houses that span 13 hectares at the Lim Chu Kang Agro-technology Park. The exhaust heat from the power package will be used to dry spent grain used for chicken feed, the company said.

Sobono Energy, Capstone’s Asian-Pacific distributor, secured the order and will supply and commission the C1000 this summer.
