Capstone Turbine Corporation (www.capstoneturbine.com) (CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced that it secured an order for a C600S microturbine to provide prime electrical power for a small community in Mali located in West Africa. The 600kW Signature Series, dual mode microturbine will provide stand-alone power, and is the first to be installed in Mali.

Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Capstone, said, “Our focus continues to be fixed on diversifying our customer base and geographic presence while increasing our business in the CHP or energy efficiency markets. Africa is a new growth market for Capstone and an important part of our strategic initiative. Since launching the initiative, we have sold products into South Africa, Nigeria, Algeria, Tunisia and now Mali.”

The customer, KAMA-SA, believes that the application will be repeated in other cities and villages in West Africa in the near future. The order is expected to be commissioned in August 2017. KAMA-SA selected Capstone microturbines because of their ability to run butane, which is a locally available, economical and clean-burning fuel. The customer also recognized the advantages of Capstone’s air bearing technology, which means there is no need for oil changes, reducing maintenance cost and down time in the remote location.

“This is another project highlighting Capstone’s ability to meet the varying needs of our global customer base,” said Jim Crouse, Capstone’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We continue to expand our ability to burn a wide variety of fuels, driving new opportunities around the globe,” added Mr. Crouse.

According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), access to electricity in Sub-Saharan Africa still lags behind the rest of the world due to the scarcity of capital and other factors. Economic growth and living conditions are severely constrained by a lack of reliable power generation capacity.
