Follow-On Order Down Under

14 more Capstone microturbines to large Australian coal seam gas company

Posted on September 9, 2013

Capstone Turbine Corp., a clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received another follow-on order for a large Australian coal seam gas company.

The latest order is for 14 C30 (30kW) units, bringing the total number of units sold to date to 248 C30 microturbines. These orders are part of a periodical supply contract for the life of the project, at least five years.

The C30 microturbines are supplied as integrated packaged systems by Capstone's distributor Aquatec-Maxcon Pty. Ltd. for use in remote coal seam gas exploration and production wells in the Australian Queensland (QLD) outback.

Coal seam gas is plentiful in Australia and is used to fuel power stations that generate electricity to supply major industrial customers, homes and businesses. It is forming the basis of a major new liquefied natural gas (LNG) export industry that will deliver substantial economic benefits to Australia and create many thousands of jobs.
