Capstone's C1000 Signature Series microturbine

Capstone Turbine Corp., a manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, has secured a follow-on order for a C1000 Signature Series microturbine to power an unmanned gas compression station located in the US Midwest. Capstone distributor Horizon Power System secured the order.

The natural gas-fueled C1000S microturbine will operate 24/7 and deliver prime power to critical equipment at the remote site.

“Capstone has a long history of successful operation in all phases of the oil and gas industry around the world,” said Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Capstone. “As the oil and gas market continues to recover, we expect to see more follow-on orders from companies looking to reduce their operating expenses while simultaneously reaching their environmental and emission goals.”
