Power To The Shale

Capstone Turbine Corp., a manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, has received an order for a C600S microturbine to provide prime power for an oil and gas exploration and production company operating in the Ohio, USA, Utica Shale region.

The C600S microturbine will operate on pipeline quality natural gas and be installed in stand-alone mode at a remote midstream natural gas compressor station in Monroe County, Ohio. Rated at 804 hp (600 kW), the C600S microturbine will provide three-phase power to the remote site.

E-Finity Distributed Generation, Capstone’s distributor for the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern United States, secured the order which is estimated to be commissioned in October 2017.
