Capstone Turbine Corp., a manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, will supply a C600 Signature Series microturbine to power a natural gas compression station in southern Wyoming. The dual mode C600S microturbine will be fueled by natural gas from a nearby pipeline and provide primary power to the compression station.
Horizon Power Systems, Capstone’s oil and gas distributor for the Eagle Ford, Permian, Barnett, Mancos, San Juan, and Wattenberg Shale plays, secured the order, which is expected to be commissioned in September 2017.
“We are seeing a steady increase in our global oil and gas business,” said Jim Crouse, Capstone’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Repeat oil and gas customers like this help to solidify Capstone’s position as the microturbine market leader and the preferred go-to power solution in the recovering oil and gas market.”
