Capstone to Provide Clean Power from Waste Gas for Repeat Oil and Gas Customer

CHATSWORTH, Calif., June 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Turbine Corporation ( (Nasdaq:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it has secured an order for two C1000 Signature Series microturbines to provide power from waste gas for a repeat oil and gas customer in Southern California.

“This is a significant order in the California oil and gas market and further illustrates the strengthening of Capstone’s oil and gas related business which made up 34% of total product revenue last year,” stated Darren Jamison, Capstone’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Repeat customers are critical to our future growth, and we look forward to forging a long-term partnership with our industry leading Factory Protection Plan that aligns us 100% with our end-use customers and rewards everyone with system uptime and positive operational performance,” added Mr. Jamison.

Cal MicroTurbine, one of Capstone’s distributors in California, secured the order which is expected to be commissioned in the fall of 2017. The customer selected Capstone microturbines for its proven ability to provide clean, flexible and reliable performance while running on lower quality, minimally processed associated waste gas.

“We are excited this repeat customer selected us based on our customer focus, value and integration experience over traditional power generation providers,” said Kenda Brown, President at Cal MicroTurbine. “We look forward to a long-term relationship with this customer and providing them a premium service through our all-inclusive Factory Protection Plan,” added Ms. Brown.

Both C1000S microturbines will be installed alongside the Capstone Logic Controller and operate on high BTU, minimally processed gas. The microturbine units will produce quality power from low-quality waste gas with ultra-low emissions. The installation will ultimately act as a pilot site for a potential larger site expansion in the future.

“Capstone was tapped again by this existing customer due to past project success in waste gas utilization and remote power applications,” said Jim Crouse, Capstone’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Combined with Capstone’s high reliability and local presence, we were able to provide the highest quality solution at a reasonable cost,” added Mr. Crouse.
