Flare gas used in on-site microturbine

Capstone Turbine Corporation has received an order for a C1000 microturbine.

Expected to be commissioned in October 2015, the C1000 microturbine will utilize flare gas produced by a central Saskatchewan energy company through a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Canada’s Kineticor Resource Corporation.

‘Strict guidelines have been imposed under the Saskatchewan Energy and Resource Directive S-10 to reduce the flaring, incinerating and venting of associated gas,’ said Jim Crouse, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Capstone Turbine. ‘Capstone microturbines can efficiently run on this often wasted resource to generate clean energy for end users,’ added Crouse.
