Microturbines To Slovenia

Two Capstone C200s to operate in CCHP application; provide reliable power for regional hospital

Posted on June 20, 2013

Capstone Turbine Corp., a clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced the first order of its microturbines in Slovenia. Two Capstone C200s (200 kW each) will be installed at Splošna bolnišnica Novo Mesto, the general hospital in Novo Mesto, Slovenia.

Capstone's distributor for Croatia and Slovenia – Liabach – secured the order and will commission the units this fall.

The company said the C200s, which will be installed on the hospital's rooftop, will operate in a combined-cooling, heating and power (CCHP) application to lower emissions, increase energy efficiency and ensure reliable power generation for the 377-bed regional hospital. The natural gas-fueled microturbines will be grid-connected and provide electricity, heating and hot domestic water for the facility.

Capstone said the C200 features its patented oil free air bearing technology, remote monitoring and diagnostic capabilities, and integrated utility synchronization and protection.

The project was funded in part by the Council of the European Union to help the hospital meet international efficiency standards. Following installation of the C200s, hospital officials anticipate natural gas efficiencies to increase from 34 to 73%.
