CHATSWORTH, Calif., Oct. 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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 a C1000 Signature Series microturbine to provide combined cooling, heat and power (CCHP) for a large cured meat company in Veneto, Italy.
IBT Group, Capstone’s Italian distributor, secured the order, which is estimated to be commissioned in early 2018. Capstone microturbines were selected for their ability to reduce energy costs while also increasing operational efficiency.
“I’m very encouraged to see yet another order from IBT Group in Italy. This makes it their third distinctive project secured this quarter utilizing our new Signature Series product in three very unique and diverse customer applications,” said Darren Jamison, Capstone’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Not to mention a recent small project win for a single C65 CHP project which overall makes them our most active European partner this summer,” Mr. Jamison concluded.
“We are very proud of this application as it is the first ‘quadri-generation’ plant in Italy,” said Ilario Vigani, IBT Group’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our customer’s business is focused on exporting quality cured meat abroad. By maximizing their production plant’s energy efficiency, we will be able to help their competitiveness in the international markets, thus helping our country export balance.”
A natural gas fueled C1000 Signature Series microturbine will be installed in grid connect mode, which enables the customer to operate with the utility grid in a load sharing capacity. The microturbine energy system will connect to a special steam boiler generator with post-combustion capabilities, delivering cold water, ice, hot water and steam for production purposes. The cured meat company will also utilize the CCHP microturbine to meet the high cooling demand of its onsite meat storage facility.
“Commercial and Industrial customers with high heat or cooling demands are ideal applications for our microturbines,” said Jim Crouse, Capstone’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Capstone microturbines are adaptable and able to pair with other technologies, such as steam boilers, to provide even larger economic benefits.”
