Leading the Way in Resilient and Sustainable Energy Solutions, Capstone’s Microturbines Continue to Impress New and Returning Clients in Europe
Capstone Green Energy Corporation (NASDAQ: CGRN), a global leader in carbon reduction and on-site resilient green Energy-as-a-Service (EaaS) solutions announced that E-quad Power Systems GmbH, its distributor in Germany, Belgium, Denmark and the Netherlands, has recently entered into four contracts for a total of eight Capstone microturbines. The orders are from multiple customers operating in several different industries.
- A German composite parts manufacturer located in Weilheim/Teck has ordered four Capstone C65 microturbines. These units will replace Capstone systems that have been in service for more than a decade in a combined heat and power system, which also operates as a part of a volatile organic compounds (VOC) cleaning application. The commissioning is expected in June 2023.
- An offshore oil and gas exploration and production company based in the Netherlands has placed a new order for two Capstone C65 microturbines, updating their fleet of Capstone turbines. These units will operate on high-pressure natural gas on mainly unstaffed gas production platforms 300 km or 186 miles out in the North Sea. The new units are expected to be commissioned by July 2023.
- A major oil and gas company has ordered one Capstone C65 microturbine. The unit will be used for combined heat and power and run on associated gas from the onshore production site near Steinhorst in Lower Saxony. The customer operates several onshore production facilities in Germany. The new unit is expected to be commissioned later this summer.
- Another global operating oil and gas company has also ordered one Capstone C65 microturbine, and it will be used for local power needs at an onshore production site. The new unit is expected to be commissioned later this summer.
“The loyalty of our customers in returning to Capstone for additional units to support their operations is a testament to the reliability and efficiency of our solutions. From commercial and industrial to oil and gas production, Capstone is helping our customers meet their operational reliability needs with minimal maintenance requirements while also providing environmental benefits by lowering emissions associated with the energy production needed to operate their facilities,” said Capstone Green Energy President and Chief Executive Officer, Darren Jamison.
Marcus Mehlkopf, Chief Financial Officer, Dipl.-Ing (Engineering), from E-quad Power Systems added, “The volatility of gas and electricity prices has reached unprecedented levels, introducing uncertainty for our customers and us. In times like this, seeing our oil and gas customers return with new orders is especially satisfying. It is equally gratifying to see the huge investments we have made in new turbine markets bring in new sales – from the innovative VOC-treatment application to turbines operating on 100% hydrogen fuel. We are optimistic about the potential for microturbines to play a critical role alongside renewable energy in developing smart grids.”
