VAN NUYS, Calif., Jan. 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Turbine Corporation (www.capstoneturbine.com) (Nasdaq:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it has secured an order to upgrade multiple Capstone microturbines to a C200 Signature Series microturbine for Benz Research & Development, an existing customer, seeking clean and reliable power with a goal to be virtually carbon-free and improve their resiliency in a hurricane-prone region in the United States.
The order was secured by E-Finity Distributed Generation, Capstone's distributor for the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern U.S., and will be commissioned in April 2019. The new C200S will replace an existing C65 array that has been in successful operation for over ten years.
Based in Sarasota, Florida, Benz Research & Development has been a leader for over 30 years in optical polymers, advancing the art and science of contact lens & intraocular lens (IOL) materials. While looking to upgrade their onsite power generation with minimal carbon footprint, Benz once again turned to Capstone microturbines, because they met two of their most critical needs.
