Capstone to supply three C1000s to Canadian gas processing plant

Capstone’s Canadian distributor, Horizon Power Systems, has sold three C1000 power packages to Canada’s Genalta Power, a company that owns and operates independent power plants that produce and sell electricity from waste energy sources.

The three Capstone C1000s will be installed at a Genalta client's natural gas processing plant, where they will be fuelled by gas captured from refinery flares.

Many refineries, landfills, and wastewater treatment plants still flare waste gas into the atmosphere, which increases CO2 gas emissions and global warming. Capstone sees its microturbines as an ideal solution as they use the waste gas to produce reliable and clean renewable energy onsite.

Todd Taylor, Horizon's vice-president and corporate account manager in Canada, said the turbines would help the plant meet strict regulations in the Canadian province of Alberta aimed at reducing gas flaring among various industries.
