Capstone microturbines to power CHP, CCHP applications in Indonesia

Published on: 

Capstone Turbine Corp. has received multiple orders totaling eight C1000 Signature Series microturbines for projects in Indonesia and Malaysia. Serba Dinamik, Capstone’s distributor for Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei, will own and operate the installations, operating the microturbines as power plants for their customers. The sites are expected to be commissioned in stages beginning in late 2016.

The natural gas-fueled C1000S microturbines will be installed in combined heat and power (CHP) and combined cooling, heat and power (CCHP) applications. The microturbines will provide heating and cooling services in addition to electricity. The projects will utilize the microturbines as their primary source of onsite electrical and thermal power. When deployed in a CHP/CCHP application, the microturbines can reach total system efficiency levels in excess of 80 percent.


The projects include shopping centers and multi-unit residential buildings and hotels. The power generated at each installation will be sold to their customers at the national feed-in tariff of the respective country.
