Capstone Green Energy Secures Order for 800kW Biogas Fueled Microturbine Energy Solution in Spain
Unit Will Operate on Landfill Gas as Part of Greener Approach to Waste Management
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Capstone Green Energy Corporation (NASDAQ: CGRN), a global leader in carbon reduction and on-site resilient green Energy-as-a-Service (EaaS) solutions, announced that Micropower Europe S.L., its distributor in Spain and Portugal, has secured an order for a C800 Signature Series with a Micropower biogas treatment unit and four heat recovery modules. The unit will be operated at a landfill to produce electricity for waste management and recycling operations. It is expected to be commissioned in October 2023.
“The versatility of Capstone microturbines is evident in every new order we receive, but our customers are choosing Capstone for many of the same reasons: fuel flexibility along with high reliability on a range of fuels, low maintenance requirements, and of course, lower carbon emissions. Our customers are looking for cleaner, greener ways to approach their operations, and Capstone is here to support them in reaching their goals,” said Capstone Green Energy President and Chief Executive Officer Darren Jamison.
The modularity of Capstone’s C800S turbine design is one of the primary reasons the customer chose this product. In addition, Capstone units integrate well with other technologies, such as the heat recovery units, which will eliminate leachate at the site and protect the water table in a sensitive and remote area. Because the microturbine will be installed in a remote area, the minimal maintenance needs were another important factor in choosing Capstone. Finally, the Capstone microturbine operates predictably on different qualities of biogas. This is particularly important when using gas from the landfill, which is composed of many different gases in varied concentrations.
“This exciting and important project combines several green technologies to produce a superior environmental outcome. The customer had stringent requirements for reliability and fuel flexibility that the Capstone microturbines meet. When combined with the heat recovery modules, this is an ideal solution for the challenges the customer was looking to overcome,” said Manel Blasco, Chief Executive Officer of Micropower Europe S.L.
