CHATSWORTH, Calif., June 8, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Capstone Turbine Corporation (www.capstoneturbine.com) (Nasdaq:CPST), the world’s leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received two orders for C1000 microturbines for energy efficiency projects in New York City, New York. A single C1000 will be installed at a New York University research and learning facility while a second C1000 will replace the existing generators at the River Park Towers residential complex in the Bronx.

RSP Systems, Capstone’s distributor for New York and Connecticut, secured both orders, which are to be commissioned in early 2016. Both natural-gas-fueled C1000 microturbines will be installed in combined heat and power (CHP) applications in order to provide primary power and hot water to each location. Once commissioned, the microturbine systems will decrease the operating costs for both customers by shrinking demand during peak hours and cutting the overall energy purchased from the grid.

Capstone microturbines were chosen for their low emission profile and for holding the highest net efficiency rate at nearly 80 percent. Capstone is at the forefront of green building technology, ensuring that the New York University research facility and Bronx residential complex remain compliant with all current emissions laws and green building best practices.

“We are strongly encouraged by the growing acceptance of Capstone microturbines in the New York City area as it’s a tremendous market opportunity with excellent economics for CHP customers,” said Jim Crouse, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Capstone Turbine.

“Our distributor in New York City has invested heavily in marketing, personnel, training and infrastructure over the last several years to be in position today to really penetrate this critical market, and I am encouraged to see the positive results of their efforts,” said Darren Jamison, Capstone’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

“RSP Systems is a great example of how we are diversifying our business from oil and gas into the CHP market and how the maturation of our distribution channel will provide future top line growth,” added Jamison.

CHATSWORTH, Calif., June 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Capstone Turbine Corporation (www.capstoneturbine.com) (Nasdaq:CPST), the world’s leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received an order for 25 C65 microturbines to fulfill the continual expansion of existing oil and gas customer fleets in shale plays across the western United States.

Horizon Power Systems, Capstone’s distributor for the Eagle Ford, Permian, Barnett, Mancos, San Juan, and Wattenberg Shale plays, secured the order, which is expected to be commissioned later this year. The order will serve numerous facets of the shale oil and gas production process and help to bolster aging infrastructures throughout these regions.

The natural-gas-fueled C65 microturbines will be installed in dual mode, which allows each customer to operate independently of the grid or with the grid in a load sharing capacity. Once commissioned, the microturbine systems will decrease the operating costs of key U.S. shale operations and ensure that reliable power is delivered to each site.

“As the U.S. shale market strengthens, Capstone stands ready with efficient and reliable microturbine energy solutions for both new and follow-on customers,” said Jim Crouse, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Capstone Turbine. “From urban to remote locations, Capstone microturbines continue to be the ideal solution for oil and gas producers looking to reduce operational expenditures and improve their on-site performance,” added Crouse.

“This significant new order is received following our recent order coming out of the Marcellus and Utica Shale Plays which had been secured by our distributor E-Finity Distributed Generation. Having our distributor Horizon Power Systems secure an impressive 25 microturbine unit order should be considered a clear market indicator that shale gas producers are continuing to focus on increasing efficiency while lowering their operating costs despite the low energy prices. Capstone microturbines are becoming a brand name to which customers turn for highly reliable and low-maintenance energy solutions within the global oil and gas industry,” stated Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer at Capstone Turbine Corporation.

CHATSWORTH, Calif., June 1, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Capstone Turbine Corporation (www.capstoneturbine.com) (Nasdaq:CPST), the world’s leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received an order for a 600-kilowatt microturbine system to be installed in the OATI data center and office facility currently under construction in Bloomington, Minnesota.

Vergent Power Solutions, Inc. (www.vergentpower.com), the Capstone distributor for the Upper Midwest, New England and Eastern Canada, received the order from Computer Avenue, LLC (“Computer Ave”). Computer Ave is engaged by Open Access Technology International (“OATI”) to develop the OATI South Campus as an office and mission critical data center. The building is also being developed as a microgrid site. OATI is a leading software solution provider to the energy industry with over 1,600 customers, comprising 98 percent of North American energy industry firms, utilizing its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform. (www.oati.com).

The C600 package will provide the new OATI South Campus facility with electricity, hot water and chilled water 24/7/365. Because of the critical nature of the complex, the microturbine will be configured to provide power in stand-alone mode in the event of a grid failure. The C600 will operate in parallel with wind, solar, and energy storage systems at the facility, along with the utility grid network. The C600 is planned to be upgraded to a C1000 in the future as the needs of the OATI South Campus grow.
“This is a groundbreaking project because for many years the prevailing theory was that the Midwest was not a hospitable market for cogeneration and trigeneration projects due to poor project economics and the conservative nature of the market here,” said Justin Rathke, President of Vergent Power. “Lower natural gas prices coupled with rising electric rates have created an opening for best-in-class CHP systems, and the additional benefits of the Capstone solution are a great fit for an innovative and visionary company like OATI.”

“Microgrids, along with other forms of localized distributed generation, are set to transform the North American power grid,” said David Heim, Chief Strategy Officer of OATI. “The OATI South Campus, with the Capstone microturbine and other generation and energy storage technologies, will play an important role in proving how microgrids can bring significant benefit for building owners as well as the greater grid as a whole. OATI is glad to have the Capstone microturbine as one of the foundational energy production building blocks of the OATI South Campus,” added Heim.

“This is a landmark energy project for the state of Minnesota. The fact that OATI’s client base is comprised of a who’s who list of energy industry firms is an unparalleled opportunity to demonstrate the benefits of microturbine technology to a broad and influential audience,” said Rathke.
