Capstone To Upgrade Upstate New York WWTP Providing An Energy Solution From Biogas

Chatsworth, CA (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Capstone Turbine Corporation ( (Nasdaq:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received an order for a C600 Signature Series microturbine to become part of an extensive upgrade for a wastewater treatment plant in upstate New York.

Capstone’s distributor, GEM Energy, secured the order, which is expected to be commissioned in the Spring of 2018. Capstone microturbines were selected for their low emissions and modular design, which is ideal for biogas applications. The customer received a New York State Energy Research & Development Authority (NYSERDA) incentive for implementing an onsite electricity solution from biogas.

The C600 Signature Series microturbine will be installed in a combined heat and power (CHP) configuration at the wastewater treatment facility and be fueled by biogas from the local municipal sewer system.

“Our recently launched Signature Series product is targeted directly at CHP, and this New York wastewater treatment plant project is significant as it furthers our strategic efforts to better diversify our market verticals, as energy efficiency is a big growth market for us both in the U.S. and globally,” said Darren Jamison, Capstone’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

The microturbine CHP plant will incorporate new digesters, advanced gas treatment and heat exchangers for heating the digesters. The site also has the potential for further expansion to larger microturbine solutions in the future.

“We are excited to see further market penetration in the renewable energy space,” said Jim Crouse, Capstone’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Wastewater treatment plants are realizing they can leverage the biogas they produce to reduce their operating costs and increase on-site reliability,” added Mr. Crouse.
