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.
Since 2006, YPFB Transporte has installed 11 Capstone C65 MicroTurbines at pipeline compressor stations across the country. “Reduced maintenance on the Capstone microturbines is very important because our compressor plants are usually far from cities. The microturbines reduce interruption in the service we provide, which makes our service more trustworthy. Maintaining microturbines costs about 40% less than a normal generator. We save time and money by not needing to maintain the units all the time.” He indicated the microturbines are expected to pay for themselves in approximately five years.
