Capstone to Deliver 1.6 MW Signature Series ICHP Solution to New York Area Hospital

CHATSWORTH, Calif., May 30, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Turbine Corporation ( (NASDAQ:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it has received an order for a C1000S and C600S Signature Series microturbine with Capstone integrated heat recovery modules and controls to improve the energy efficiency at a hospital in the New York metropolitan area.

Capstone’s distributor RSP Systems secured the order, which is expected to be commissioned in late 2017. Capstone microturbines were selected for their low environmental footprint and significant operational cost savings.

“We continue to successfully diversify our market verticals by concentrating on CHP as energy efficiency is a growth market for us globally and New York in specific is one of our fastest growing territories,” said Darren Jamison, Capstone’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our recently launched Signature Series product with its fully integrated heat recovery solution is targeted directly at customers like hospitals as well as hotels, office buildings, retail and industrial applications and I’m proud to say the Signature Series product, and new integrated heat recovery solution is performing well and exceeding expectations,” added Mr. Jamison.

Both natural gas-fueled microturbines will be installed in an integrated combined heat and power (ICHP) application and operate in dual mode, which allows the customer to operate independently or with the grid in a load sharing capacity. The clean exhaust heat from the integrated heat recovery modules will help offset the facility’s thermal load and boost overall site efficiency.

“This is another example of a U.S. hospital adopting sustainable business practices to become more efficient and have less of an impact on the environment,” said Jim Crouse, Capstone’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Capstone enables healthcare facilities to become more self-sufficient while saving them money on energy costs,” added Mr. Crouse.
