  • Mexico : Capstone Turbine Secures Second Major Order in December As the Market in Mexico Heats Up -- Latest Order is Fourteen C1000s for Multiple Industrial CHP Projects
    January 06, 2015
    Capstone Turbine Corporation, the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received another significant order from Mexico for fourteen C1000 microturbines for multiple CHP projects in Mexico.

    "This substantial order was received just weeks after we received the order for six C800 microturbines and sixteen C30 microturbines for the second phase of the Los Ramones pipeline project in Mexico," said Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer at Capstone Turbine. "These two orders combined total approximately $17 million and should make Mexico a top 5 market for calendar year 2015," added Jamison.

    According to Cogeneration and On-Site Power Production magazine, the Mexican Congress passed energy reform legislation in 2008 as part of a national commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% from their 2002 levels by 2050. The government is promoting CHP, or cogeneration, as an energy efficient option to help meet national energy goals and estimates the country's potential CHP capacity could top 15.5GW by 2020.
