Follow-on order for microturbines in Europe

Capstone Turbine Corp has received a follow-on order from its Switzerland-based distributor for its C200 MicroTurbine systems.

Capstone’s distributor, Verdesis Suisse SA, ordered the systems, worth US$2.6 million, which will be deployed at multiple biogas sites throughout Austria, Germany and Spain. Previous microturbines ordered from Verdesis have been deployed in a variety of applications, including biogas, at sites throughout Belgium, France, Switzerland and Germany.

Jim Crouse, Capstone’s Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing said: ‘Verdesis, in conjunction with its Micropower partners, Wels Strom, VTA Technologie GmbH and AESA SpA, provide expertise in deploying a number of multiple unit biogas applications as well as others that offer customers effective and reliable solutions.’

Commenting on this new order, Verdesis Suisse SA’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Beat Naef, said, ‘We have installed Capstone microturbines previously with positive results. We are looking forward to deploying the new C200 microturbines that have the same technology advantages.’
