VAN NUYS, CA / ACCESSWIRE / February 10, 2020 / Capstone Turbine Corporation (www.capstoneturbine.com) (Nasdaq:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, today announced that SCE Energy (scengy.com), Capstone's exclusive distributor in Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and Northern United Kingdom secured an order for a C1000 Signature Series ICHP microturbine for an industrial processing business park in Scotland.
The order is phase one of a multi-phase development project with a scheduled commission date of April 2020. An additional one to two megawatts are expected to be installed within the next eighteen months rounding out phase three of the development project in 2022.
The latest C1000S ICHP microturbine order will be installed at a recycling plant and will be utilized in a combined heat and power (CHP) application. The order includes a Capstone supplied integrated roof mounted heat recovery module (HRM). The HRM is able to capture the waste heat from the microturbine, thereby achieving two outputs – electrical and thermal – from a single fuel source, in this case, low-pressure natural gas. The integrated CHP solution provides greater than 80 percent overall efficiency, while reducing NOx and greenhouse gas (CO2) emissions.
“One of the keys to growing and diversifying our global microturbine business is the continued growth of our energy efficiency or CHP business and projects utilizing renewable fuels,” stated Darren Jamison, Capstone Turbine's President and Chief Executive Officer. “Capstone's energy efficiency business has grown from 40% of total revenues last year to 54% this year, and if you look at renewable projects, we have essentially doubled that portion of the business year-over-year,” added Mr. Jamison.
Environmental concerns played a major part in the selection of a power generation solution. After a thorough analysis comparing various distributed generation technologies, the customer's management ultimately chose Capstone microturbines as their preferred solution for their low emissions and environmental benefits.
“The Capstone microturbine solution achieves significant emissions reductions, making the project Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) compliant as well as ensuring cost savings as part of the energy system solutions,” stated Sam Clark, President of SCE Energy. “SCE Energy is delighted to announce this achievement in the year the United Kingdom is to host the 26th Session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 26),” concluded Mr. Clark.
