Capstone Green Energy Records Repeat Microturbine Orders

Published on: 

Microturbines act as a mobile power source in Canada and provide electricity to remote wellhead sites in Appalachia.

Capstone Green Energy Corp., a global pioneer in carbon reduction and onsite green energy solutions, has recently secured additional orders for its Signature Series microturbines through its distributors, both set to serve in energy operations in Canada and the Marcellus Shale region.

Horizon Power Systems, the exclusive distributor of Capstone in areas including Western Canada, has arranged for two Capstone 200kW microturbines to be used as mobile power sources at a natural gas production site in Canada. They are expected to replace old diesel units and be fully operational by fall 2023.

Darren Jamison, President and CEO of Capstone Green Energy, highlighted the reliability and environmental performance of their products, stating, "Capstone Green Energy microturbines continually demonstrate their exceptional value proposition, substantiating their reliability, emission reduction capabilities, and overall ease of use."

The transition to Capstone's microturbines supports the customer's objectives of shifting from high-emission diesel fuel to natural gas, which has a lower carbon footprint. This decision was influenced by the product's performance, regulatory compliance, and cost-saving aspects, including reduced need for transporting diesel to well sites and less maintenance compared to diesel engines.

Noting the customer's third order within a year, Sam Henry, Horizon Power Systems President, said, "They're impressed with the uninterrupted performance of the microturbines currently in the field, reduction of their customers' carbon footprint, and ease of running on wellsite natural gas."


Additionally, E-Finity Distributed Generation, Capstone's established distributor for the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern United States and the Caribbean, confirmed a repeat order for 10 Capstone C65 microturbines. These systems are slated for deployment in the heart of the Marcellus Shale Play in Appalachia.

The C65 microturbines, fueled by wellhead natural gas, will provide primary electrical power in remote wellhead sites.

"When our customers, who rely on power in remote locations for critical operations, consistently choose to return for additional units, it serves as a testament to the positive impact of Capstone Green Energy,” Jamison said.
