Capstone receives follow-on order for 7 MW worth of equipment

Posted on October 23, 2012

Capstone Turbine Corp. received follow-on orders totaling 7 MW from a major oil and gas customer operating on shale gas.

The latest order is for eight C600, one C800 and 17 C65 units for installation at several remote central gathering sites in the Midwest of the United States. This follow-on order was from the same oil and gas producer that purchased two C600 and 10 C65 power packages in June.

The new order increases the producer’s fleet of Capstone microturbines to 38 systems of various sizes totaling 8.5 MW. Capstone distributor Horizon Power Systems secured both orders.

The 38 microturbine packages will provide power to central processing facilities and metering stations. The microturbines, fueled by pipeline gas, will produce electricity to provide all power to the onsite equipment, including heaters, pump motors, compressors and distribution panels.
