Capstone Success Continues In Industrial CHP And CCHP Market In Mexico

Stocks in this article: CPST

CHATSWORTH, Calif., Sept. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Turbine Corporation ( ) (Nasdaq:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, today announced that it received an order for one C800 and one C600 from one of its key distributors in Mexico.

Capstone distributor DTC Soluciones Inmobiliarias SA de CV secured the orders for two large industrial customers in Mexico. The C800 combined heat and power (CHP) system will be installed at a large food and beverage packaging factory in San Luis Potosi. In addition to supplying power for the facility using natural gas, the exhaust from the microturbine will provide hot water for the manufacturing process.

The C600 will be installed at a plastics injection molding company in Guadalajara. The microturbine will drive a combined cooling heating and power (CCHP) system, using chilled water in the injection molding process. The facility is expected to save 45% on its energy costs after installing the microturbine CCHP system.

Based in Guadalajara, DTC has been a Capstone distributor for three years and is one of the company's top distributors in Mexico. DTC has over thirty projects in the pre-order design process currently and more than sixty more opportunities targeted for next year. 

"Capstone is very pleased with the continued order flow from DTC on the heels of the 5MW they sold back in March," said Jim Crouse, Executive Vice President of Sales. "We continue to see a growing demand for our products in Mexico where microturbines can offer significant cost savings for commercial and industrial customers."

"We have focused on the industrial CHP and CCHP market in Mexico which is booming right now," said Alejandro Munoz, DTC President. "Using efficient and reliable microturbines in place of less efficient onsite equipment and reliance on the electrical grid can provide a very attractive payback in Mexico."
