Capstone Secures C800 And CC125 Order To Fuel Groundbreaking Renewable Energy Anaerobic Digester System

Stocks in this article: CPST

CHATSWORTH, Calif., June 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Turbine Corporation ( www.capstoneturbine.com) (Nasdaq:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, today announced it received an order from CleanWorld Partners, an internationally recognized technology innovator in anaerobic digestion technology and by-product utilization. The order includes a Capstone C800 Microturbine and Capstone Clean Cycle 125kW (CC125) waste heat-to-electricity generator.

Regatta Solutions, Inc., Capstone's distributor for California, Oregon, Washington and Hawaii, secured the order.

The grid-connected system will be installed this summer in a combined heat and power (CHP) application at an innovative organic-waste-to-renewable energy facility at a university nationally acclaimed as a sustainability leader.

The ultra-low emission C800 and CC125 will provide a portion of the site's electric load. All waste heat produced from operation of the C800 will heat an on-site digester and, along with waste heat from the digester, run the CC125 -- all without any need for additional fuel.

Biogas produced by the digester, which sits atop a landfill, will fuel the clean-and-green C800.

"CleanWorld has achieved widespread success in anaerobic digester solutions, significantly reducing greenhouse-gas emissions, with scalable and affordable solutions," said Michelle Wong, Chief Executive Officer of CleanWorld Partners. "Capstone microturbines align with our mission to implement effective renewable solutions that mitigate emissions and capture loss of energy through a waste and heat conversion process."

"Using this dynamic combination of the C800 and CC125 in a renewable energy anaerobic digester is the perfect example of how Capstone microturbines provide cleaner, more reliable, and cost-effective power solutions," said Jim Crouse, Capstone's Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "The CC125's Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) captures normally wasted heat from a variety of sources and turns the heat into clean-and-green electricity, which significantly raises a power-system's net efficiency."
