Capstone Turbine Corporation (Our Principals)
Capstone Turbine Corporation (www.capstoneturbine.com) (Nasdaq:CPST) is
the world's leading producer of low-emission MicroTurbine
systems, and was the first to market commercially viable
MicroTurbine energy products. Capstone Turbine has shipped
over 5,000 Capstone MicroTurbine(R) systems to customers
worldwide. These award-winning systems have logged millions of
documented runtime operating hours. Capstone Turbine is a
member of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Combined
Heat and Power Partnership, which is committed to improving
the efficiency of the nation's energy infrastructure and
reducing emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases. A
UL-Certified ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001:2004 certified
companies; Capstone is headquartered in Chatsworth in the Los
Angeles area with sales and/or service centers in the New York
metro area, Mexico City, Nottingham, Shanghai, Singapore and
MicroTurbine (Our Product)
Through product excellence, Capstone has
achieved a predominant leadership position in MicroTurbines
worldwide. Capstone MicroTurbines are small gas turbines for
production of power (and heating or cooling if needed), which
come in ratings between 30 KW to 1000 KW.
features of Capstone MicroTurbine
Capstone MicroTurbines have got many
unique advantages, some of which are:
They offer eight “9”s of reliability
(Availability Factor of 99.999999%)- one of the highest in the
They run in a completely “dry” mode –
neither lube oil nor coolants are needed at all.
There is only one moving part, therefore, the
maintenance requirement is minimal – they can easily be
installed in remote, un-manned environments.
They can be designed to run on different fuels-
liquid fuels such as diesel, kerosene, etc or gases such LNG,
propane or biogas.
They are virtually vibration free and do not
need any elaborate foundations.
They can be installed indoors or outdoors – no
separate power house is needed.
They have one of the lowest noise levels and
emission levels in the industry.
They are complete “power plants” in
themselves and hardly any additional electrical protection or
metering is needed.
They have a very high tolerance to phase
imbalance or single phasing – each phase can be loaded from
almost “0” to 100% independent of the other phases.
They can be easily installed and commissioned
– all in the space of a few hours if the front is ready.
There are 3 basic models C30, C65 and C200. The model
number specifies the power output in ISO conditions. For
example, a C200 model shall deliver a power output of 200 Kw
under ISO Conditions and at site conditions, would deliver a
reduced power output (say around 160-170 Kwe depending on the
site conditions). The C200 can be offered in modular package
in terms of C600, C800 & C100 which consist of 3, 4 and 5
nos of C200 packages in a standard ISO container.
Capstone MicroTurbines have different
models to operate on various gaseous and liquid fuels
Pipeline Natural Gas
1.Stand alone/ Grid Connect Power:
through advanced engineering based on proven turbine
design, microturbines represent a watershed energy
management solution. Transforming the way businesses
think about energy production, Capstone solutions reduce
energy costs, ensure power availability and help
preserve the environment with its near-zero emissions
profile. Unlike traditional back-up power, Capstone
solutions support everyday energy needs and generate
favorable payback - today.
CHP systems conserve energy and cut operational costs by
creating two forms of energy: electricity and heat.
3.CCHP The heat
output of Capstone MicroTurbines can be used to both
heat and air condition your facility via absorption
4.Secure Power Capstone
MicroTurbines can operate connected to a utility grid or
provide stand alone power to critical loads.
Biogas Capstone MicroTurbines can cleanly burn waste gases to create
renewable power and heat.
6.Resource Recovery: Oil
and Gas Capstone MicroTurbines reliably power onshore and offshore
operations using unprocessed wellhead gas.
