Capstone gets follow-up order in India

Pre-treatment of fuel not necessary, company said

Capstone Turbine has received a follow-on order for Oil and Natural Gas Corp. (ONGC), India’s multi-national oil and gas company, for one C200 Signature Series and two C65 microturbines.

The microturbines, destined for a remote gathering station in western India, will provide primary power to the facility while simultaneously reducing the flaring of associated gas which negatively impacts the environment. Utilizing the flare gas that would otherwise be wasted reduces the company’s overall operational costs. In addition, it helps the environment by eliminating the need to import power from the local utility, reducing their overall carbon footprint.

“Gas flaring is a global issue, but it’s much more acute in areas with limited infrastructure and often has devastating negative impacts on local communities. Beyond the obvious noise and light issues, flaring emits black carbon, methane, and volatile organic compounds, all of which are dangerous air pollutants,” said Darren Jamison, president and CEO of Capstone Turbine. “It’s tremendous to see a world-renowned oil and gas company like India’s ONGC continue to utilize Capstone’s green energy products to limit the environmental impacts associated with flare gas in India.”

Capstone microturbines are able to use flare gas as an input fuel source without any gas pre-treatment. This allowed the customer to monetize the associated gas while simultaneously keeping operational costs low by not needing extra fuel-cleaning equipment.

“Our aim is to provide next-generation energy solutions to industries that match today’s distributed generation needs,” said Shubham Mishra, Principal at Brio Energy. “Through the use of Capstone’s microturbine energy systems, we can advance clean and reliable energy solutions across the country and achieve carbon neutrality.”

Brio Energy Pvt. Ltd., Capstone’s exclusive distributor in India, secured the order, which is expected to be commissioned in May 2021.
