Capstone receives 9MW factory protection plan contract

Microturbine manufacturer Capstone Turbine has signed a contract for a factory protection plan (FPP) for nine C1000 microturbines at Horizon Power Systems locations.

Energy supplier Horizon Power Systems aims to cover nine turbines that currently operate in remote central gas gathering plants in the US Rocky Mountain and mid-continent regions, with the 9MW FPP.

The FPP is an addition to $175m in product backlog and increased the total contract backlog for Capstone Turbine’s FPPs to a record of over $55m.

The Capstone Turbine FPP is designed to secure the reliability of the company’s turbines offering a risk-transfer solution that aims to limit the monetary risk of unplanned maintenance over the contract life. Capstone Turbine power packs, in which the turbines are integrated, reduce flared gas and cycle it back into the production process.

"Most oil and gas producers work in remote locations where an electric utility grid is not an option or unreliable. The Capstone Turbine microturbine becomes the sole source of critical low emission power that our customers have come to rely on," said Sam Henry, president of Horizon Power Systems.

The FPP is set to run over nine years.

Horizon Power Systems has currently over 600 Capstone Turbine microturbines in operation.

Capstone bags $2.9M micro-turbine orders from German distributor

Tue, 01/29/2013 - 17:36 -- Ruth Williams

Capstone Turbine’s German distributor E-Quad Power Systems has ordered two C1000 micro-turbine packages, one C200, 14 C65s and four C30s, totalling $2.9 million in product expected to ship in the next six months.


"The January orders from our German distributor E-Quad are almost equal to the total amount E-Quad purchased from Capstone in the previous nine months and are consistent with reports that the German market is starting to rebound," said Jim Crouse, Capstone's VP of Sales and Marketing.

"Despite the slowdown in the European market, Capstone has posted higher year-over-year quarterly revenues for 23 consecutive quarters. A rebound in Germany and France would definitely ease some of the overall headwinds we have experienced in Europe," said Darren Jamison, Capstone's President and Chief Executive Officer.

E-Quad Power Systems, headquartered in Herzogenrath, Germany, provides project planning, installation supervision, start-up and maintenance of Capstone products. E-Quad is focused on oil & gas resource recovery, turbo electric and combined heat and power applications.
