Capstone Secures 7.2MW Order To Power Mexican Government Facility

CHATSWORTH, Calif., Oct. 12, 2012 (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 recently received an order for 39 diesel-fueled microturbines totaling 7.2 megawatts that will provide power to a Mexican government facility.

The order includes 35 Capstone C200's and 4 C65 liquid fueled systems, which are expected to be installed in early 2013. Capstone's distributor Enerxpert, secured the order and will be responsible for deploying and supporting this facility for the next two years. Enerxpert is a leading distributor in the microturbine market for Mexico and Central America. It has developed experience in large site installations for Service, Government and Hospitality industries and is headquartered in the Santa Fe District of Mexico City.

"Capstone microturbines are becoming the preeminent power solution for customers who demand high reliability and low emissions," said Jim Crouse, Capstone's Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "This customer is replacing low-performance reciprocating engines with highly efficient diesel-fueled microturbines. They were impressed with Capstone's record of similar microturbine installations across the globe."

The 39 microturbines will provide clean-and-green power for mission-critical loads at the government facility.

"This project confirms that Mexico is a growing market in the energy sector," said Jorge Hernandez, Enerxpert Chief Executive Officer. "We see this as the first of several similar facilities in the next five years."

"To receive a purchase order of this size is another example of why Capstone is becoming a preferred power solution provider for mission-critical loads around the world," said Darren Jamison, Capstone's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We continue to see our business shift to the new larger C200 and C1000 based solutions with approximately 70% of our product revenue last quarter coming from our new game changing technology."
