Capstone Turbine's Russian distributor BPC Engineering shipped two C1000 microturbines to upgrade an industrial unitary enterprise “paper mill” in Minsk, Belarus, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The microturbine installation will serve as part of the paper mill’s boiler house renovation due to the expansion of production lines and an increase in power demand.
The natural gas-fueled C1000 microturbines will be installed in a combined heat and power (CHP) application to provide primary power to the facility. Additionally, the heat from the clean exhaust will be used to generate approximately four tons of steam per hour for technological processes, heating and hot water production. The two-megawatt system will operate in dual mode at over 80% system efficiency and cover about 80% to 90% of the facility’s electrical needs.
BPC Engineering, Capstone’s largest distributor in Russia, secured the order, which shipped in late June and will be commissioned later this year. BPC has traditionally been one of Capstone’s largest distribution partners, with over 1,400 microturbines operating in Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine.
