Capstone Turbine Corporation, the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received an order for a C800 microturbine to upgrade a leading pork producer in Lithuania.
Sarlin Oy Ab, Capstone's distributor for Finland, Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania, secured the order, which is expected to be commissioned in October 2015.
Fueled by biogas produced on site, the C800 microturbine will be installed in a combined heat and power (CHP) application along with an anaerobic digester, fuel compressor and heat exchanger. With energy efficiency levels approaching 80 percent, the innovative "green waste" energy system will convert organic solid waste into clean, renewable energy for the meat production facility. In addition, the exhaust from the microturbine will be captured to provide thermal heat at the highest efficiency possible.
