Capstone receives order for additional C1000 power packages

Published on: 

Capstone Turbine Corporation, the manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced recently that it received a three-megawatt order from another Oil & Gas producer in the Eagle Ford shale play.

Capstone continues its penetration of the North American shale gas market with another multiple megawatt order from a different Independent Oil & Gas producer in Eagle Ford. This marks the fourth major Independent Oil & Gas producer to turn to the Capstone technology in the U.S. shale market.


Capstone distributor Horizon Power Systems (Pumps & Service), which secured the order with the new exploration and production company, expects the customer will continue to order additional C1000 Power Packages to meet their power generation needs in 2012.

The three C1000s will provide three megawatts of clean and green prime power to central processing facilities and metering stations at remote well sites in the Eagle Ford shale play. The microturbines, fueled by pipeline quality gas, will produce electricity to provide power to the onsite equipment, including heaters, pump motors, circulation pumps and distribution panels.
