Capstone Turbine Corporation to Supply Eight C65 Microturbines for Syracuse Vamc in New York
Feb 3 15
Capstone Turbine Corporation has received an order for eight C65 microturbines to upgrade the Syracuse VA Medical Center, or VAMC, in Syracuse, New York. GEM Energy, Capstone's distributor in New York, secured the order. The Albany office of CHA Companies is managing the design of the power plant, which has been commissioned by the Department of Veteran Affairs. The Syracuse VAMC chose clean-and-green Capstone microturbines to improve their energy efficiency and grid reliability, as well as reduce utility energy consumption. The eight natural gas powered microturbines will be used in an integrated combined heat and power (ICHP) application to produce 520kW of electricity and hot water for the medical center. With project constraints around available space for the CHP plant, Capstone's microturbines were a perfect fit with the least amount of noise and vibration. Capstone microturbines meet the strictest worldwide emissions standards and are ideal for mission critical businesses looking to utilize uncontaminated exhaust heat for cogeneration. The microturbine system will provide the Syracuse VAMC a solid economic return while reducing its carbon footprint and minimizing regular maintenance.
