Capstone Secures Orders For 4.6MW From Two Leading U.S. Natural Gas Producers In The Northeast

CHATSWORTH, Calif., July 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Turbine Corporation ( www.capstoneturbine.com ) (Nasdaq:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, today announced orders totaling 4.6 megawatts from two leading natural gas producers in the Northeastern United States. The orders include two Capstone C1000 Power Packages, three C600s, and a C800 Power Package.

E-Finity Distributed Generation, the Capstone microturbine distributor for the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern U.S., secured both orders.

One of the nation's top 10 natural gas producers ordered two C1000 Power Packages and two C600 Power Packages that will provide prime power at a liquid stripping facility in West Virginia's remote northern panhandle.

"Due to extremely tight space at this site, the company required a unique installation that our microturbines will accommodate," said Jeff Beiter, E-Finity Managing Partner. "The units will be stacked to fit the limited space available."

The natural-gas fueled units are scheduled to be installed this fall. "The customer needs a quick start-up and an extremely reliable power source," Beiter said. "Our Capstone microturbines continue to meet the oil and gas industry's demand for highly reliable, low-emission power solutions."

Also scheduled to be installed this fall is an order from another natural gas producer for two natural gas-fired microturbines -- a C800 and C600 Power Package -- to provide prime power to two Pennsylvania sites. "The rugged terrain isn't well suited for transporting fuels, especially in harsh winter conditions," Beiter explained. "These isolated sites don't have access to the local utility power and need reliable, onsite power generation that doesn't require a lot of maintenance. The Capstone microturbines meet all of the customer's needs."

Emissions also played a significant role in the company's decision because the sites are located near a major Pennsylvania State Game Land, home to a significant trout habitat. "The ultra-low emissions of the Capstone microturbines ensure the company meets the state's strict clean-air requirements and continues to be a strong environmental partner," Beiter added.
