Capstone Powers Shopping At Russian Mall

Posted on June 6, 2011

Capstone Turbine Corp. received an order for four C1000 microturbine energy systems, set to provide combined cooling, heating and power at a shopping mall in Sochi, Russia.

The 4 MW trigeneration system will be installed in two phases to meet the mall’s expanding power needs. The Capstone system will replace three existing Petra gas reciprocating engines.

The electricity generated by the four C1000s will fulfill 100% of the mall's power requirements. The microturbines' waste heat will be captured to produce thermal power that will heat the facility and supply hot water. Using four heat exchangers with a combined 1.2 MW power capacity and gas boilers that offer a 5 MW thermal power capacity, the trigeneration system will fulfill 100% of the shopping mall's thermal needs. During the summer the waste heat will be diverted to two absorption chillers to produce air conditioning.

During phase one, BPC will install the first C1000 Power Package on the roof of the existing power plant that supplies electricity to the 40 000 m2 mall. During phase two, BPC will commission three additional Capstone C1000s to accommodate the mall's expansion to 160 000 m2.
