NEW YORK, June 15, 2005 — Capstone Turbine Corporation received orders for 2.4 megawatts of its 60-kilowatt microturbine systems from the company’s Brooklyn sales and service office for customers in New York and New Jersey.
These most recent orders are direct sales for Capstone, which will supply, commission and service the systems destined for several locations in the New York and New Jersey region. These units will fulfill various application requirements such as baseload power for daily energy cost reduction, combined heat and power (CHP), back-up power, direct exhaust for food processing and high-pressure steam generation.
“We are delighted to receive these first direct sale orders from the northeast,” said Capstone’s Chief Executive, John Tucker. “New York is a market with a tremendous potential for our products and services. The establishment of our New York sales and service facility at the end of last year has positioned us to take full advantage of the opportunity, which is demonstrated by these initial orders.”
As a further extension of efforts to develop the New York market, Capstone will be exhibiting a 60-kilowatt ICHP (integrated combined heat and power) system at the Buildings NY trade show in Manhattan at the Javits Center on June 21 and 22, booth number 486.
