Producer Wants Capstone Microturbines’ Average 99% Power Availability
JULY 11, 2018 – Needing round-the-clock power at a remote South Texas gas processing facility, a large oil and gas producer purchased a 1 megawatt Capstone microturbine from Horizon Power Systems. The C1000S microturbine will be commissioned later this year.
The natural gas-fueled Signature Series C1000 microturbine will provide prime power to critical equipment at the gas processing plant. The plant is located in a remote area of Texas far from utility power. Producers need round-the-clock power to keep gas flowing and avoid shutdowns that can impact their bottom line.
Like other major producers that have teamed with Horizon Power, the company turned to Capstone microturbines because of their reliability, efficiency, and low maintenance requirements.
