    US Marines Buy Five C-200s

    (Replacing Cummins Diesel Generator)(Specs call for 5 [cpst] C-200s)

    The US Marines specify a CPST C-1000 as the best solution for their most critical location (Quantico). It will be interesting to see if all US Military Branches begin to design CPST Microturbines into their building and replacement specifications.

    Sentiment: Buy

        Question:
        No sales have been announced in months! Are you booking any sales we don't know about or are they slowing and will hurt this quarter’s results?

        Answer from Capstone Management:
        The Company only press releases orders or events it deems as material. Materiality is determined by overall size of the order, new market verticals or geography. Therefore, press releases are often sporadic and may not be a direct correlation to Company order momentum.
        -------------------------------------------------------------------
        Five C-200s would not be material judging by "overall size of the order, new market verticals or geography".
        Especially as the U.S. Govenrment and the U.S. Military has bought MTs from Capstone Turbine before and the U.S. Department of Defense has worked with and been a Capstone Turbine customer for many years.

        Capstone Microturbines Power Through Hurricane Sandy
        CHATSWORTH, Calif., Nov. 2, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Turbine Corporation (Nasdaq:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that its microturbine systems continued to operate during and after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the eastern seaboard this week.
        News agencies reported on Tuesday morning that a peak total of over eight million electrical utility customers were in the dark. The Northeast was hardest hit, but significant outages occurred in northern Ohio, and sporadic outages occurred as far away as northwest Indiana and northern Georgia. In some regions, power failures were nearly total. Governor Andrew Cuomo said that 90% of Long Island families were without power Tuesday. One of New Jersey's utilities reported that 86% of its 1.1 million customers were without power Tuesday morning, and that figure was still 86% early Wednesday.

    • "It's not about the one order (1 Mw) from the Marines. It is about the fact that the Marines are specifying Capstone Microturbines in their RFP. The Marines are replacing Cummins generators with Capstone Microturbines. They will also replace Cats and every other dirty engine. The paradigm is shifting and all of a sudden you will see all military branches specifying microturbines"___Paradigmshiftcpst

      Bump!

    • The Marines just asked for a Price Quote in this RFP.

      Later, if they like the quote, they MAY actually buy.

      For now, it's just window shopping.

    • An energy and exergy analysis of a microturbine CHP system
      Basim M.A Makhdoum School of Mechanical and Systems Engineering Newcastle University

      Providing water and energy?

      ...Utilising the waste heat energy of a microturbine in the desalination process has not been covered through the literature. Since the thermal desalination technologies are not common for small scale water production, the opportunity of modelling and simulating small scale multi-effect distilled desalination (MED) is becoming a great challenge....

      3. Model configuration, result and discussions

      ...The real data of a 200kW microturbine was collected from product number C200 that manufactured by the Capstone Company....

      ...Utilising a single-effect absorption chiller will provide cooling that can be used either on site or off site, while integrating ORC will give extra electric power that can be useful for many purposes. In addition, cascading the MED and TVC-MED desalination with the microturbine will produce portable water that can tackle the issue of water shortages, especially in remote coastal areas.....

      ***** So many practical uses are still in the testing stage. A lot of actual installations are now proveing themselves in the real world and only now beginning to see sizeable reorders. ****

      GLTA, It's looking like 2014 is becoming a very big year for Capstone.
