Capstone Turbine Corporation has announced that it received another follow-on order from a large Australian coal seam gas company.

The initial order in July 2008 was for the supply of 110 C30 microturbines, which was later increased to 154 C30’s in 2009. The first follow-on order was for 44 C30 microturbines in October 2012. The majority of these units were shipped in November and December 2012.

The latest order is for 36 units increasing the total number of units sold to date to 234 C30 microturbines. These orders are part of a periodical supply contract for the life of the project, at least five years, received from Capstone’s Australian distributor, Aquatec-Maxcon Pty Ltd.

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