Capstone Gets 4.6 MW Order For Flare Gas Project
By Mike Brezonick04 January 2016
Capstone Turbine Corp. announced it has received an order from Horizon Power Systems for three C800 systems and two C1000 systems for a total of 4.6 MW for a large flare gas energy project in North America. Horizon Power Systems is the exclusive Capstone distributor for Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Arizona, the Rocky Mountain states, Intermountain Regions, Gulf Coast states and the western provinces of Canada.
“The global slowdown in the energy industry is shifting customers away from exploration to an increased focus on lowering operating costs at existing assets and converting on-site flare gas to power generation,” said Darren Jamison, Capstone's president and CEO. “This is one way Capstone microturbines can be used to lower oil and gas users, monthly operational costs.
"We have recently added additional oil and gas sales resources at Capstone, and we are encouraging our key distribution partners, like Horizon, to do the same."
The new orders will bring Horizon’s total fleet to more than 600 microturbines in operation, Capstone said.
