Capstone Turbine Corporation (www.capstoneturbine.com) (Nasdaq: CPST), the world’s leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced that it has secured an order for two of its new C200 Signature Series units with Capstone integrated roof mounted heat recovery modules (HRM), that will allow for generating up to 300kW of hot water heat recovery (1.0 MMBtu/hr) in addition to the 200kW of electrical output. Horizon Power, one of Capstone’s longtime distribution partners in the U.S., secured the order.
New C200 Signature Series Microturbine with Integrated Capstone Heat Recovery Modules
The innovative combined heat and power (CHP) or cogeneration solution leverages Capstone’s pre-packaged roof mounted heat recovery modules. This allows the customer to capture the thermal energy from the exhaust to provide hot water for domestic uses or as thermal energy to drive an absorption chiller, boosting the overall system efficiency of the CHP installation to more than 80%.
“Our Signature Series product with its fully integrated heat recovery solution is targeted directly at customers like hotels, office buildings, retail, industrial applications and universities. Microturbines are well suited for CHP and CCHP applications because they benefit from round-the-clock operations while enabling them to lower their operational costs and simultaneously comply with the world’s most stringent emissions standards,” said Darren Jamison, Capstone’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
In fiscal 2018, the energy efficiency market vertical for Capstone accounted for 47% of product revenues, followed by the natural resource at 38% and renewable energy at 9%. The critical power and microgrid market verticals combined for 6% of annual product sales.
“We continue to successfully diversify our market verticals by concentrating on CHP and CCHP as energy efficiency is a growth market for us globally,” concluded Mr. Jamison.
