Capstone Turbine Corp. announced it has secured a 3.4 MW order for a gas processing facility in Kuwait. The order includes a new C600 Signature Series microturbine, a new C800 Signature Series microturbine and two remanufactured C1000R microturbines, which will provide prime power for the facility. SPECTO International, Capstone’s distributor in Kuwait, secured the project, which is expected to be commissioned in late 2018.
The combination of factory remanufactured turbines, and new Signature Series turbines allowed Capstone to provide a full factory warranted solution at price that met the customer’s tight project budget and delivery timeline. The C1000R packages will receive a factory inspection, be upgraded to include the latest Signature Series product updates and will receive a full factory performance and acceptance test prior to their shipment and installation in Kuwait.
“Capstone was selected over other alternatives, including traditional gas engines, because of our proven track record of superior performance in oil and gas applications in other regions of the world,” said Jim Crouse, executive vice president of Sales and Marketing at Capstone. “The selection of Capstone microturbines was also based on our ultra-low emissions, high reliability, and extended maintenance intervals.”
