Capstone and Multichill reveal absorption chiller plans

Capstone Turbine Corporation has announced a strategic partnership with MultiChill Technologies, Inc for the delivery of air-cooled absorption chillers and water making systems to end users in conjunction with its C30 and C65 microturbines.

The MultiGen system (pictured) utilizes waste exhaust gas heat to provide cooling capabilities for combined cooling, heating and power (CCHP) applications, enabling Capstone's C30 and C65 microturbines to achieve up to 90% efficiency. Furthermore, an integrated water making system is able to capture water from the atmosphere, refrigeration or air conditioning and supply it to the end user.

MultiChill's MultiGen system is available to Los Angeles, US-headquartered Capstone for use in both new and existing projects and installations.

Wallie Ivison, CEO and Director at MultiChill commented: ‘We anticipate that these systems will greatly enhance the salability of Capstone microturbines as a multiple output system, as it provides flexibility as to what the cooled air can be used for’.
