Capstone reveals three new CHP deals

Capstone microturbine combined heat and power (CHP) systems are being installed at three US locations in a swathe of deals announced by the company.

The Syracuse Veterans Administration Medical Center in New York state is installing eight natural gas-fuelled C65-ICHP Capstone turbines and a FlexSet distributed generation control system at the 398-bed hospital. Installed on the medical centre's roof, in addition to operational cost savings, the system will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 1580 tonnes per year.

At Feura Bush, also in New York, Owens Corning's Delmar insulation plant is installing three natural gas-fuelled C65-ICHP machines, which will replace a large, oil-fired heater in the facility.

And Harbec Inc is also installing eight natural gas-fired C65-ICHPs and control systems. A Thermax ED-10C absorption chiller is integrated into the system to supply cooling in addition to the heating and power of the system. This project was funded, in part, with NYSERDA incentives.
