03 October 2019

Capstone Turbine Corporation, the clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced recently that Cal Microturbine, Capstone's exclusive distributor for California, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington, has signed a Factory Protection Plan (FPP) long-term service contract in California covering 2.0 megawatts (MW) of Capstone Microturbines installed at a single location for a major oil and gas company.

Due to California's strict air quality regulations, this oil and gas company was not authorized to flare their waste gas and was required to find an alternate means of burning the gas. The two Capstone Signature Series C1000's allows them to burn this gas while simultaneously generating and providing electricity to their oil field. Additionally, the Capstone Microturbines are configured as Dual Mode, allowing them to continue to produce power in the event of a grid outage or utility blackout. This FPP will provide 10 years of complete service coverage, including scheduled and unscheduled maintenance.
