Microturbine manufacturer Capstone Turbine Corporation (Nasdaq:CPST) continues to expand its reach into the Asian-Pacific market with the sale of a Capstone C1000 unit that will be installed in a combined heat and power (CHP) application at a progressive farm in Singapore.

N&N Agriculture Pte Ltd, one of Asia’s advanced, high-tech egg farms, purchased the C1000. The power package, which is fueled by biogas generated from animal waste in an anaerobic digester, will generate reliable, low-emission electricity and thermal power.

The clean-and-green onsite electricity produced by the C1000 will power the farm’s six large climate controlled layer houses and two grower houses that span 32 acres (13 hectares) at the Lim Chu Kang Agro-technology Park. The exhaust heat from the Capstone power package will be used to dry spent grain used for chicken feed.
