Capstone Turbine, the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, today announced that Capstone Micro Turbines in Slovenia has received its first order for two C200s to be installed at Splošna bolnišnica Novo Mesto, the general hospital in Novo Mesto, Slovenia.
Liabach, Capstone's distributor for Croatia and Slovenia, secured the order and will commission the units this fall.
With plans to be installed on the hospital's rooftop, the C200s will operate in a combined cooling, heating, and power (CCHP) application in order to lower emissions, increase energy efficiency, and ensure reliable power generation for the 377-bed regional hospital. Fueled by natural gas, the microturbines will be grid-connected and provide electricity, heating, and hot domestic water for the facility.
Funded in part by the Council of the European Union, the project will help the hospital meet international efficiency standards. The EU is hoping to attain a 20 percent cut in Europe's annual primary energy consumption by 2020. Hospital officials anticipate natural gas efficiencies to increase from 34 percent to 73 percent following installation of the C200s.
"The microturbines' ultra-low greenhouse gas and noise emissions, low vibration, and low maintenance costs, paired with their ability to withstand Slovenia's harsh climate, make them the best technology for the hospital," commented Jim Crouse, Capstone's Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. The C200 will feature Capstone's patented oil-free air bearing technology, providing both remote monitoring and diagnostic capabilities, and integrated utility synchronization and protection. The small, modular systems are designed to allow easy and low-cost installation.
"Worldwide interest in Capstone's C200 product continues to grow," stated Darren Jamison, Capstone's President and Chief Executive Officer. "This order not only introduces Capstone into yet another new marketplace, but also exemplifies Capstone's global appeal and diversity. Our value proposition of high reliability, long maintenance intervals, and low total cost of ownership provides an unrivaled product that makes sound business sense for countless applications."
