A C65 microturbine produces electricity for Wintershall Holding GmbH, in Großaitingen, Germany and uses heat exhaust to warm facility buildings, process heating, and to heat pipelines. "We are producing electricity from the turbine which we use here in the facility. We are producing about 40 percent of our electricity needs here at the plant. In the future we are thinking about using the heat from the turbine for our facilities, building, process heat, and also for heating our pipelines. We are very satisfied at the moment with the turbine and what we got as a result of the test."
