Chatsworth microturbine manufacturer Capstone Turbine Corp. received orders totaling five megawatts through one of its Mexican distributors last week, the company announced.
Capstone, which makes small turbines that can run on natural gas, diesel and other fuels, said the orders have come through DTC Soluciones Immobiliarias SA de CV, a Jalisco distribution partner.
Financial details of the orders were not disclosed.
The largest order is for a 2.6-megawatt combined cooling, heating and power plant that will be installed at a manufacturing plant in northern Mexico. A one-megawatt system will be installed at a pharmaceutical manufacturing plant in Guadalajara. Two smaller projects are part of the order.
“DTC has been a valuable partner for Capstone in Mexico,” said Jim Crouse, executive vice president of sales and marketing, in a statement. “Their investments into developing their Capstone business are truly paying dividends with this recent group of high-profile orders.”
The Chatsworth firm’s microturbines also have been installed alternative-fuel vehicles, offices, hospitals, colleges and hotels.
