Capstone Turbine has received an order for a C1000 and C200 for use at a large Nigerian pharmaceutical company.

The order comes after a December meeting with a delegation of the Nigerian government and business leaders led by the United States Ambassador to Nigeria at expanding the number of Capstone microturbines in Nigeria can grow the country’s economy.

The Capstone microturbines will be used to provide power and thermal energy for the manufacturing process, improve the efficiency of the plant and reduce their carbon footprint.

“This order represents Makon Power Systems’ second multiple unit order and first purchase of Capstone’s C200 and C1000 products. We expect several additional orders greater than a megawatt for industrial and oil & gas customers in Nigeria in the months to follow,” said Ademola Ajakaye, Makon’s Chief Operating Officer.
