CHATSWORTH, California - Capstone Turbine Corporation ( (CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced that it received an order for a C800S microturbine to upgrade the manufacturing facility of a producer of artificial casings for meat products in Zacapu, Mexico.

DTC Ecoenergía, Capstone’s distributor in Mexico, secured the order which is expected to be commissioned in February 2017. The customer intends to use the microturbine as the first phase of a larger 8MW combined heat and power (CHP) plant.

“Forward-looking executives are increasingly looking at ways to improve operating results in a competitive global environment while simultaneously reducing their air emissions and total carbon footprint,” said Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer at Capstone. “As more and more companies start making informed energy decisions, we expect to continue to see substantial growth of CHP applications worldwide,” added Mr. Jamison.

The natural gas-fueled C800 Signature Series microturbine will be installed in a dual mode application to supply power to critical loads and help produce steam for industrial processes. Capstone microturbines were selected for the project because of their low operating cost, high reliability, low noise and low emissions.

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), Mexico is investing in new power plants to increase electricity generation capacity and transition to natural gas as the main fuel source.  Additionally, the industrial sector in Mexico accounts for 58% of Mexico’s electricity usage. This transition to a more decentralized model aligns well with cogeneration or CHP, which is able to achieve 80% total system efficiency.  This helps to improve the customer’s bottom line while also providing greater energy resiliency to their business.

“Privately owned generators are playing a much larger role in Mexico’s electricity supply,” said Jim Crouse, Capstone’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “DTC continues to expand their installed base and aftermarket support capabilities. They are a great example of Capstone’s growing distribution network, and why CHP has become more than 60 percent of our business today,” added Mr. Crouse.
