Capstone Turbine Corporation’s 1 MW Capstone C1000S microturbine is part of the company’s new Signature series of microturbine energy systems; it is also available in 600 kW and 800 kW versions.
Capstone’s UK representative, Turner EPS, says the C1000S incorporates ‘numerous system and design upgrades intended to improve overall product quality and enhance the microturbine ownership experience in all applications, but specifically CHP and CCHP’. The microturbine features ‘the same proven technology’ as the original C1000, such as advanced combustion controls, engine redundancy, and remote monitoring. The C1000S is also covered by Capstone’s Factory Protection Plan ‘to guarantee operational excellence and low lifecycle costs for up to nine years’. Turner EPS said: “The updates and changes implemented into the Signature series are intended to strengthen the position of the C1000S as the smartest 1 MW turbine energy system on the global distributed generation market.”
