Capstone to supply two C1000 microturbines to Belarus

Published on: 

Capstone Corp. recently announced that it has shipped two C1000 microturbines to upgrade an industrial unitary enterprise paper mill in Minsk, Belarus. BPC Engineering, Capstone’s distributor in Russia, has secured the order, which is expected to be commissioned later this year.

The microturbine installation will serve as part of the paper mill’s boiler house renovation due to the expansion of production lines and an increase in power demand. Capstone microturbines were selected for their ability to reduce the customer’s energy costs as well as make the paper production facility more energy efficient.

The natural gas-fueled C1000 microturbines will be installed in a combined heat and power (CHP) application to provide power to the facility. Additionally, the heat from the clean exhaust will be used to generate approximately four tons of steam per hour for technological processes, heating and hot water production. The two MW system will operate in dual mode at over 80% system efficiency and cover about 80 to 90% of the facility’s electrical needs, the company said.


BPC has over 1400 microturbines operating in Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine
