Capstone Ships Its First C1000 Megawatt Scale Product
Capstone Turbine Corporation announced it has shipped its first C1000 megawatt scale product. The system will be installed at ANTEX (Angles Textil S.A.), www.antex.es, located in Spain.
ANTEX is an independent Spanish textile group whose activity centers on the broad world of synthetic yarns. It has eight industrial plants in Spain and one in Brazil. In the past, ANTEX had installed a cogeneration system using a reciprocating engine running on heavy fuel. Capstone’s C1000 system will run on Liquid Natural Gas (LNG).
The customer will utilize the electrical power and usable exhaust heat to produce steam and hot water which will be used in the industrial process. This project will showcase the new C1000’s advantages such as modularity, reliability, part load efficiency, lower maintenance costs, ease of installation, and smaller footprint versus traditional reciprocating engines.
