Explore our library of global case studies to learn how Capstone microturbines are aligning with businesses across various markets to improve their energy consumption through on-site power production. Since 1988, Capstone has shipped thousands of clean-and-green microturbines to customers around the world, logging millions of cumulative operating hours in the field. After all, Capstone is committed to improving the efficiency of the world’s energy infrastructure and reducing pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions.
The luxury ski resort, Sport Center Igora, in the Leningrad region near St. Petersburg, Russia is 54 kilometers from the nearest power line. Today, 30 Capstone C60 and 8 C65 MicroTurbines provide all power needs for the resort. In addition, thermal energy from the microturbines heat buildings and supply hot water through a combined heat and power (CHP) application “The ski resort is far from the utility grid, so connection to the grid would be very problematic and not economically viable. We selected Capstone microturbines as the power-generating equipment because of their high level of reliability, ease of operation and maintenance, and low operational costs.”
