Capstone gets order for two microturbines
By Keefe Borden27 January 2023
Capstone Green Energy Corporation has secured a follow-on order for two C200S microturbines from a leading oil and gas producer. The systems will be deployed in the heart of the Marcellus Shale play in Appalachia and add to an extensive fleet of microturbine energy systems.
The order is scheduled to be commissioned in the summer of 2023, the company said.
“Remote locations lacking grid connectivity are a perfect use-case for Capstone’s microturbines, as our oil and gas industry customers continue to demonstrate. In addition to providing the reliable electricity they are looking for to operate their equipment, Capstone’s low-emissions microturbines also help customers meet their emissions reduction targets. We appreciate the confidence that repeat customers continue to place in our team and technology,” said Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Capstone Green Energy.
The C200S microturbines, fueled by wellhead natural gas extracted directly from the pipeline, will provide primary electrical power at two separate Appalachia gas compression sites where no electricity is currently available. The microturbines will act as the primary power source for these remote sites while keeping site emissions ultra-low.
Capstone Green Energy provides customized microgrid solutions and on-site technology systems. To date, the company has shipped over 10,000 units to 83 countries.
