The order includes three C800 systems and two C1000 systems.
“The global slowdown in the energy industry is shifting customers away from exploration to an increased focus on lowering operating costs at existing assets and converting on-site flare gas to power generation. This is one way Capstone microturbines can be used to lower oil and gas users’ monthly operational costs,” said Darren Jamison, president and CEO of Capstone Turbine Corporation. “We have recently added additional oil and gas sales resources at Capstone, and we are encouraging our key distribution partners, like Horizon, to do the same.”
Horizon Power Systems is the exclusive Capstone Turbine distributor for Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Arizona, the Rocky Mountain States, Intermountain Regions, Gulf Coast States and the Western Provinces of Canada. This order brings the company’s total fleet to more than 600 operational microturbines.
