Capstone: First C200 sold into Shanghai

Die untenstehende Meldung ist eine Original-Meldung des Unternehmens. Sie ist nicht von der bearbeitet. Die presserechtliche Verantwortlichkeit liegt bei dem meldenden Unternehmen.

A 14-story high rise in Shanghai is the first in China’s largest city to use a clean-and-green C200 microturbine energy system from Capstone Turbine Corporation, the world’s leading microturbine manufacturer.

The low-emission, highly efficient, natural-gas microturbine from Capstone will be installed this summer to produce clean electricity for the Shanghai Shenergy Energy Center, along with thermal power providing air conditioning and hot and chilled water. Capstone’s distributor, Shanghai Aerospace Energy Co., sold the system and will oversee installation. The electricity will supplement power from the local utility, while the exhaust-heat energy generated by the compact C200 microturbine will be captured and run through two Yazaki absorption chillers.

The chillers will use the waste energy to heat or chill water for the building and provide efficient air conditioning. Combined Cooling Heating & Power (CCHP) is far more fuel efficient and environmentally beneficial than traditional utility power and boiler heating. The system in the Energy Center building will reach close to 75 percent efficiency – more than double the efficiency of the energy produced by the local coal-fired power plant.

“Shanghai’s interest in clean-energy systems has grown in recent years,” said Mr. Gao Dingyun, Vice President of Shanghai Aerospace Energy Co. “Our customers continue to show interest in innovative solutions that reduce greenhouse gases and improve efficiency. Capstone’s C200 microturbines are the answer to ensuring clean and reliable onsite power.”

"Worldwide interest in Capstone's C200 product has been strong since it was introduced over a year ago,” said Darren Jamison, Capstone President and Chief Executive Officer. “C200’s and our 1-megawatt C1000 systems have been sold in the United States, Europe, Russia and Australia. Asia is a key market for Capstone and selling our first C200 in a world class city like Shanghai is analogous to our first C200 sale in New York City. We have a number of our C30 and C65 microturbines in a variety of applications throughout Asia, and we continue to see significant interest for all our products but especially the C200 and C1000,” added Jamison.

The C200 product provides the same benefits of ultra low exhaust emissions, low noise emissions, low maintenance costs and industry leading reliability which have become the signature of all Capstone products. It features Capstone's patented oil free air bearing technology, remote monitoring and diagnostic capabilities, and integrated utility synchronization and protection. The small, modular systems allow for easy and low-cost installation.
