Capstone Announces Three Unit C1000 Order from Aquatec-Maxcon


Capstone Turbine Corporation ( (NASDAQ:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, today announced that it received a follow on order for three C1000 systems from Aquatec-Maxcon Pty Ltd, its distributor for the Australian market. The order is for Capstone C1000 MicroTurbine(R) systems to be installed by a coal seem gas producer in a reverse osmosis water system application in Australia.

"Australia is proving to be a strong market for both green building and oil & gas applications. This project is to power a reverse osmosis plant that cleans contaminated water that is a byproduct of coal seem gas extraction. The clean water is made available to local towns as potable water," said Jim Crouse, Capstone's Executive Vice President, Sales & Marketing.

Commenting on this new order, Capstone President and CEO Darren Jamison added, "We were very pleased with the $4.7 million order from Aquatec-Maxcon in July for our C30 microturbines. It is encouraging to see the momentum continue with this latest order for C1000's from the same end-user as our C30 microturbines."
