Capstone Follow-On Order For 10 Microturbines Signals Smooth Sailing For Super Yachts

CHATSWORTH, Calif., June 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Turbine Corporation ( www.capstoneturbine.com ) (Nasdaq:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, expands its presence in the marine market with a follow-on order of 2 C65 and 8 C30 Capstone Microturbines from German based Microturbine Marine Energy (MME), which recently entered into an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with Capstone.

The ultra-low emission, diesel-fueled units are for use in a marine auxiliary application. Auxiliary power plays a crucial role on luxury yachts and commercial vessels, providing power for navigation, communication and computer systems; on-board lights; heat; galley and elevator operations; helicopter landing pads; and more.

MME's follow-on order comes at the culmination of a successful year-long operation of a Capstone C30 aboard the Royal Huisman "Lethantia," a 44-meter (144-foot) schooner. With the C30, the Lethantia was the world's first super yacht to run with a Capstone microturbine powered MME generator. 

"What we got with the microturbine was exactly what we dreamed of," said Siegfried Steiner, Lethantia's owner and MME CEO. "This system provides responsible yacht owners sustainable energy without compromise to the comfort and enjoyment of the onboard experience." 

"I had great hopes of what might be achieved with a microturbine system, but the results totally exceeded my expectations," he added. "There is absolutely no vibration, no exhaust noise, and no smell. It's almost like operating continuously on batteries without the need for recharging. I feel I have finally come back to the simple pleasures and tranquility of sailing as it used to be." (Click here for a video about this project.) link to video>> http://youtu.be/vLTinWDhZNk

In late 2011, two Capstone C30 liquid natural gas (LNG) microturbines were installed by Dutch distributor Pon Power in the first-of-its-kind application aboard the Argonon, a Type C Tanker.  Operating in a role of inland shipping along Europe's Rhine River, the units are configured in an N+1 setting and serve as the ship's main electrical power supply.

"As the trend in energy supply on super yachts moves aggressively towards sustainable energy in a clean and quiet application, installations like the Lethantia's continue to demonstrate that Capstone microturbines truly are well suited for marine applications across the globe," said Darren Jamison, Capstone's President and Chief Executive Officer.
