1 MW microturbine contracted for Belarus

Capstone Turbine Corporation announced today that BPC Engineering, Capstone’s distributor in Belarus and Russia, secured another order for a C1000 Signature Series microturbine that is expected to ship in the second quarter. The natural gas-fueled C1000S microturbine will be installed in a combined heat and power (CHP) application for a commercial customer in Belarus. In addition, BPC Engineering and Capstone entered into a new three-year distribution agreement for Belarus and Russia.

“Despite the challenges in the marketplace, BPC continues to secure business in the region,” said Jim Crouse, Capstone’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “This is the fifth C1000 series product secured by BPC in the last four months after approximately eleven months of no product shipments. As difficult as this situation has been for both companies, we are now benefiting from our mutual respect, patience and teamwork,” added Crouse.

Capstone has shipped approximately 8,800 microturbine systems to customers worldwide.
