Capstone Turbine (Nasdaq:CPST) has announced winning an order for a C600 Signature Series microturbine to become part of an extensive upgrade for a wastewater treatment plant in upstate New York.
Capstone’s distributor, GEM Energy, secured the order, which is expected to be commissioned in the Spring of 2018. Capstone microturbines were selected for their low emissions and modular design, which is ideal for biogas applications.
The customer received a New York State Energy Research & Development Authority (NYSERDA) incentive for implementing an onsite electricity solution from biogas.
The C600 Signature Series microturbine will be installed in a combined heat and power (CHP) configuration at the wastewater treatment facility and be fuelled by biogas from the local municipal sewer system.
“Our recently launched Signature Series product is targeted directly at CHP, and this New York wastewater treatment plant project is significant as it furthers our strategic efforts to better diversify our market verticals, as energy efficiency is a big growth market for us both in the U.S. and globally,” said Darren Jamison, Capstone’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
The microturbine CHP plant will incorporate new digesters, advanced gas treatment and heat exchangers for heating the digesters. The
