Capstone to Supply C1000 Microturbine to Solid Waste Treatment Center in Finland

Capstone Turbine Corporation, the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received an order for a C1000 microturbine to upgrade an established solid waste treatment center in Tampere, Finland.

Sarlin Oy Ab, Capstone's distributor for Finland, Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania, secured the order, which is expected to be commissioned in early 2016. The turn-key project serves as the second major order for Sarlin Oy Ab within the last month.

Fueled by landfill biogas collected from two stations on-site, the C1000 microturbine will be installed in a combined heat and power (CHP) application along with a 1400kW exhaust heat exchanger, booster, and automation and gas treatment systems. The innovative "green waste" energy system will convert organic solid waste into clean, renewable energy for the waste treatment facility. In addition, the exhaust from the microturbine will be captured to provide thermal heat at the highest efficiency possible.

Capstone microturbines were chosen for their extremely low emissions, low maintenance, modular design, and ease of use. Without any need for oil, lubricants, or coolants, the cogeneration system will align with the company's environmental policy for waste prevention by improving waste recovery and recycling it to produce reliable on-site power.

According to the 2013 renewable energy progress report by the European Commission of Energy, Finland is on target to meet its renewable energy source (RES) target of 38 percent by 2020, which is in compliance with the EU Renewable Energy Directive.

"Finland is on target to meet its renewable energy source (RES) target of 38 percent by 2020," said Jim Crouse, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Capstone Turbine. "The progress being made in the global renewable energy market is indicative of a shift to renewable power production, and we are proud to be at the forefront of this movement," added Crouse.
