When officials at St. Joseph Hospital chose to be the first in Germany to install a Capstone C65 MicroTurbine® in a combined heat and power (CHP) application, they hoped for and got great results. The Capstone C65 CHP system saves the hospital €22,500 (US$30,642) annually in energy costs. “Our efforts to provide the Prüm population with high-quality, affordable medical services was forefront in our minds as we invested in this new equipment for the hospital. We wanted to make the best decision for our patients and our bottom line. The hospital’s technical director believed a turbine would be the best economical decision in large part because of the lower maintenance costs.”
