Capstone Turbine Corporation the world’s leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced recently that it has secured a fourth order for a Wyoming energy company. The order comes as Wyoming, the largest producer of coal in the country, increases natural gas and renewable power production.
The follow-on order was secured by Horizon Power Systems, Capstone’s distributor for the Western Mountain States of the United States and Western Canada. The C600 Signature Series stand-alone microturbine will run all electric power equipment at a remote and unmanned compressor station while running on locally available high-pressure natural gas (HPNG). The microturbine was selected as the unit meets stringent Wyoming air quality regulations for emissions, low maintenance intervals, and high reliability.
Wyoming currently ranks amongst the top five states with the most natural gas reserves. A shift in consumer attitudes towards alternatives such as clean natural gas, biogas and renewable natural gas has caused a shift in the production. The shift, impacted by strengthening regulations for tighter air emissions driving overall Wyoming air quality, is expected to continue to benefit low emission technologies.
