Manufacturer of microturbine energy systems Capstone Turbine Corporation announced recently that it received two large orders totaling approximately 10 megawatts from two oil and gas producers in the Eagle Ford shale play. Capstone distributor Horizon Power Systems secured the orders in the first week of April for 13 Power Packages, which will supply prime power at each central gathering site.
All 13 C1000 series microturbine packages will provide clean and green prime power to central processing facilities and metering stations. The microturbines, fueled by pipeline quality gas, will produce electricity to provide all power to the onsite equipment, including heaters, pump motors, compressors and distribution panels. The Power Packages are scheduled to be installed and commissioned in the next three months.
Capstone has received multiple megawatt orders from a new customer that ordered five C1000 Power Packages for five separate remote central gathering sites, and the second order is from a producer with multiple Capstone microturbines already in the field. This latest follow-on order includes seven C600 and one C800 Power Packages.
