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.Contact information is only available to premium subscribers. Click here to purchase a premium subscription.
