Capstone microturbines

Horizon Power Systems, Capstone’s distributor for the Eagle Ford, Permian, Barnett, Mancos, San Juan, and Wattenberg Shale plays, secured the order.

Expected to be commissioned later this year, the natural-gas-fuelled microturbines will be installed in dual mode, which island operation independently of the grid or in a load sharing capacity.
