one Star Power Solutions, the southern U.S. distributor for Capstone Green Energy Corporation, has been contracted to provide an additional 800-kW C800S Signature Series microturbine to a large West Texas energy company. The contract follows a 3.6 MW Energy-as-a-Service (EaaS) contract with the producer earlier in 2023. The West Texas energy producer is using the microturbine energy systems to power production loads using the on-site gas produced from its day-to-day operations. According to Capstone, its EaaS solution was selected due to its record of reliability in remote oil and gas fields globally and its extremely low emissions profile, as the energy producer looks to decarbonize its operations. The C800S provides up to 800kw of electric power and contains four air bearing microturbines. The Signature Series Microturbine provides ultra-low emissions and reliable electrical/thermal generation. Other benefits include:
*One moving part – minimal maintenance and downtime
*Accepts sour gas fuels with up to 5,000 ppm H2S
*High availability – part load redundancy
*Remote monitoring and diagnostic capabilities
*Various Factory Protection Plans available.
Darren Jamison, Capstone Green Energy president and CEO, said both new and existing customers are finding value in the EaaS rental offerings. “We are seeing repeat orders from core industry segments like oil and gas while also expanding interest from new areas like Electric Vehicle (EV) charging providers,” he noted. “EaaS is proving itself to be a win-win solution as it meets the Capstone customer need to manage capital investment while delivering reliable, lower emissions energy, and it meets Capstone’s need for higher margins and predictable revenues and cash flow.”
