C1000 Signature Units via Distributors Laibach & BPC Engineering

Capstone Turbine has logged additional international sales of its fuel-versatile microtubines, reporting the first sale of a megawatt C1000 Signature unit to a customer in Europe, and two C1000S units for flare-gas reduction in Uzbekistan – supporting the first two-megawatt Capstone project there.

Laibach d.o.o, Capstone’s distributor for Slovenia and Croatia, is handling the C1000S to upgrade a refractory material manufacturing facility in Slovenia, where it will be installed in a combined heat and power (CHP) application to produce primary power.

“The one-megawatt microturbine will operate in a grid connect configuration at over 90% system efficiency,” Capstone says, “which will limit the site’s grid reliance and reduce the facility’s impact on the environment.”

The Construction Material Market

“This will serve as Capstone’s third project of its size in Slovenia and one that supports the company’s growing market share in the construction material market,” said Capstone sales and marketing executive VP Jim Crouse said in a release.

Capstone reported yesterday that BPC Engineering, its largest distributor in Russia recently received payment for two C1000S microturbines for a flare gas project in the Republic of Uzbekistan.

Flare-Gas Fueled in Uzbekistan

“The flare gas-fueled C1000 Signature Series microturbines will provide primary power to an oil and gas production facility as well as help to eliminate routine flaring onsite,” Capstone says. The two-megawatt installation will also power the facility’s water pump and cooling systems.

“This is another important step in BPC’s business recovery process,” Capstone president and CEO Darren Jamison said in the BPC- Uzbekistan announcement.

BPC Gets Square

“The pace of paying and taking delivery of Capstone products appears to be increasing and these product shipments play an important role in Capstone’s cash planning process,” he said. “BPC is required to pay prior to shipment for all product releases from backlog, and to pay an additional 15% of the total value for each shipment in order to lower their past-due accounts receivable balance.” (HHP Insight, March 9)

“These two megawatts will be the first Signature Series product shipments to BPC and should further improve performance and overall customer satisfaction,” Jamison added.

Capstone noted too yesterday that it has sales and/or service centers in the U.S., Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, China and Singapore.

Seven C65 Microturbines via Distributor BPC Engineering,
Which Has Agreed to Pay Cash Before Shipment in Future

Capstone Turbine Corp said last week that it is resuming shipments of its microturbines to Moscow-based BPC Engineering, its largest Russian distributor. The order, consisting of seven C65 microturbines, is the first to be shipped to BPC Engineering since March 2015.

“The seven C65s are for a project that has been delayed since the beginning of last year,” BPC Engineering CEO Alexander Skorokhodov said in a Capstone release.

Capstone reports an order for seven of its C65 microturbines via its largest Russian distributor, BPC Engineering – the first via BPC since March 2015.

Capstone reports an order for seven of its C65 microturbines via its largest Russian distributor, BPC Engineering – the first via BPC since March 2015.

“This project moving forward signifies an improvement in the Russian market conditions and I estimate we will deliver another four to seven megawatts of new Capstone product next year,” he said, “plus a constant flow of spare parts to service our existing large fleet of microturbines.”

1,400 Units via BPC

The project is a CHP/combined heat and power installation for a swimming pool in Saint Petersburg, Skorokhodov said.

BPC has historically been one of Capstone’s largest and most successful distribution partners, with more than 1,400 microturbines in operation in Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine, Capstone says.

“We are hopeful that this reflects the beginning of an economic improvement in Russia and a return to a more robust relationship with BPC,” said Capstone sales and marketing executive VP Jim Crouse.

An Additional 15% of the Value as Make-Up

“Despite geopolitical constraints, BPC continues to sell and support Capstone products,” he said.

“We value BPC Engineering as a significant and long standing distribution partner,” said Capstone president and CEO Darren Jamison.

“Capstone has closely monitored the ongoing Russian economic situation while remaining in constant contact with BPC’s management in anticipation of a recovery in their business climate.

“As part of the strategic discussions between the two companies on the conditions moving forward,” Jamison said, “BPC Engineering has agreed to pay cash before shipment for all future product releases from backlog, and to pay an additional 15% of the value for each shipment, to lower their past-due accounts receivable balance.”
