Capstone Green Energy Corporation received a follow-on order for two signature series microturbines totaling 1.6 megawatts (MWs) for a leading bottling and packaging solutions provider in Mexico. The C1000S and C600S microturbines will be installed in a combined heat and power (CHP) application. The natural gas-fueled microturbines will be installed at the industrial manufacturer’s Guadalajara facility and are intended to provide 24/7 reliable and continuous electrical power and thermal energy for the plant. The innovative heating process has helped the plant reduce energy costs, improve efficiency, and reduce on-site emissions.
The order will lead to energy consumption savings of approximately 62% and is estimated to have an impressive return on investment (ROI) of approximately three years.
While traditional electricity produces power at 33% efficiency, Capstone CHP systems can reach efficiencies of more than 80%.
The order includes a 10-year Factory Protection Plan (FPP), a long-term service contract. Capstone’s innovative FPP is a comprehensive maintenance program designed to give financial peace of mind to microturbine customers by providing product life cycle costs at a fixed rate for both scheduled and unscheduled maintenance for the life of the microturbine system.
