Capstone to Power Another Caribbean Hotel with High-Efficiency Cogeneration Solution
CHATSWORTH, Calif. -- Capstone Turbine Corporation (www.capstoneturbine.com) (Nasdaq:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received an order for two C200 microturbines to provide combined heat and power (CHP) for a Jamaican hotel.
The propane-fueled microturbines will provide electrical power to the site loads, and the thermal energy from the microturbines exhaust will be utilized via an absorption chiller to provide chilled water to the building’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. When deployed in this configuration, the total system efficiency can exceed 80%, providing significant savings to the customer. Additionally, the microturbines reduce the customer’s dependence on the local utility grid, which can be unstable, unreliable and very susceptible to severe weather events such as hurricanes.
“Because of the tremendous resiliency of microturbines, the majority of Capstone customers experience minimal downtime, if any at all, during utility outages caused by severe weather events,” said Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Capstone. “More businesses are becoming increasingly receptive to the idea of onsite distributed power generation as a way to harden infrastructure, to not only provide operational savings with onsite generation but also provide critical emergency backup power during large-scale power outages,” added Mr. Jamison.
During the most recent hurricane season, virtually all Capstone microturbines in the affected areas remained fully operational. In the case of St. Thomas, one resort that was able to continue operating after the hurricane was with its 1.8MW gas-fired Capstone microturbine power plant. Reportedly, it was the only resort in the area with both power and water after the storm.
“Propane-fueled Capstone turbines are the growing solution for distributed power generation in markets with limited or no natural gas infrastructure,” said Jim Crouse, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Capstone. “Microturbines are able to provide significant operational savings while running on a wide range of fuels, and we expect this global trend to continue as it's a great way for customers to both save money and protect against long-term utility outages caused by severe weather events.”
