Mircoturbines heading for US shale industry

An order for 25 C65 microturbines has been placed for use in the shale oil and gas sector in the western United States.

The order with Capstone Turbine Corporation will serve various facets of the shale oil and gas production process and bolster aging infrastructure.

Horizon Power Systems, Capstone's distributor for the Eagle Ford, Permian, Barnett, Mancos, San Juan, and Wattenberg Shale plays, secured the order.

Expected to be commissioned later this year, the natural-gas-fuelled microturbines will be installed in dual mode, which island operation independently of the grid or in a load sharing capacity.
