Microturbine deal for German CHP plants

Capstone Turbine Corporation has received orders for two microturbines destined for combined heat and power projects in Germany.

Under the terms of the deals, a C800 microturbine and a C200 microturbine will be used to generate steam for two customers.

E-Quad Power Systems GmbH, Capstone's German distributor, secured the orders, which are expected to be commissioned in spring 2016.

Exhaust from the methane-fuelled microturbines will be used as combustion air for nearby burners and generate steam at 10 bar.

‘We are seeing an ever growing demand for cogeneration technologies in Germany, With the German coalition government's recent €1.5 billion ($1.6 billion) investment in the county's CHP sector, we anticipate more projects like these in the future,’ said Jim Crouse, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Capstone Turbine.
