Capstone Turbine (CPST) Receives Order For Hybrid UPS

Capstone Turbine just announced that it has received an order worth more than 1 million dollars for its C65 Hybrid Uninterruptible Power Source (UPS) units. These units, which combine microturbines with a dual-conversion UPS, are a green way to provide power to data centers.

In a press release, Capstone’s President and CEO commented on what makes this product special:

“Capstone turbines when used as a UPS application are considered clean-and-green because they emit low greenhouse-gas emissions and do not produce hazardous materials common with traditional battery-based UPS systems,” said Darren Jamison, Capstone’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

Capstone’s two Secure Power offerings are the world’s only microturbine-powered UPS solutions that can offer clean, IT-grade power produced from microturbines, the utility or a combination of both, which results in highly economical, clean and reliable power.

“The Hybrid UPS will be a key component of green, energy-efficient data centers,” said Jim Crouse, Capstone’s Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing. “In many situations, Hybrid UPS can be used in a combined-heat-and-power application, making it extremely efficient since the microturbines can provide electricity, cooling and heating. In addition to generating electricity, the microturbines’ clean waste-heat energy can drive absorption chillers to meet a data centers cooling needs in the summer and support heating needs in the winter.”
