Capstone Turbine Corporation, the world’s leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it has received orders for two ATEX-certified C200S microturbines and two C65 ATEX-certified microturbines to be installed at offshore platforms operated by a global oil and gas company located in Sarawak, Malaysia.
Capstone continues to support major oil and gas companies in their strategy to de-carbonize oil production and simultaneously improving energy resiliency at critical infrastructure locations like offshore oil platforms
Capstone has been focused over the last several years on growing the energy efficiency business, where the ten largest installed fleets of Capstone microturbines are oil and gas clients who are using microturbines to provide clean and reliable on-site energy in some of the harshest and most remote applications in the world.
The new ATEX-certified C200S systems will allow the operator to increase power demand for an unmanned drilling platform, while the C65 systems will power the wellhead platform. Often used for oil and gas exploration and production, Capstone’s ATEX-certified systems are designed to meet the unique requirements for offshore applications, which includes superior corrosion protection and other optional features.
The four systems will run on raw associated gas released from the wellhead, providing a highly reliable power source to the entire platform. As a result, the installation will be fully automated and operate remotely. The microturbines do not require oil or lubricants to operate, and they deliver power via state-of-the-art power electronics. This translates into higher equipment availability and longer maintenance intervals, providing a significant performance advantage when compared to traditional reciprocating engines.
Capstone microturbines are ideal for offshore platforms due to their small modular design, less sensitivity to gas quality, and reliability in harsh environments. Capstone microturbines feature patented air bearing technology with only one moving part, making them rugged, reliable, and a perfect solution for the oil and gas industry.
