Capstone to Deliver First C600S Three-Bay Package Microturbine

By CT2 Staff20 March 2017

Capstone Turbine Corporation (Capstone) has secured an order for a C600 Signature Series microturbine to power a Horizon Power Systems (Horizon) natural gas compression station in southern Wyoming. This is the first order for a three-bay package C600S microturbine, which has a smaller footprint and is lighter than the previous five-bay package.

The dual-mode C600S microturbine will be fueled by natural gas from a nearby pipeline and provide primary power to the compression station. Although Capstone has smaller units running statewide, the larger 600kW microturbine will be the first to be installed in the state of Wyoming.

“The oil, gas and other natural resources market continues to be an important market vertical for Capstone as we strive to improve our vertical market diversification with a goal of 40% oil, gas and other natural resources, 40% energy efficiency and 20% renewable energy and critical power applications,” said Darren Jamison, Capstone’s president and CEO. “Last quarter oil, gas and other natural resources comprised 38% of revenue with energy efficiency coming in at 53% and renewable energy and critical power representing 9%.”

Horizon is Capstone’s oil and gas distributor for the Eagle Ford, Permian, Barnett, Mancos, San Juan, and Wattenberg Shale plays. The units are expected to be commissioned in September of 2017.
