Eleven natural gas-fueled microturbines provide heat and power to the 30,000-square-meter (323,000-square-foot) Yarmarka Shopping Center in Ukhta, Russia. "We analyzed existing products in the distributed generation market and chose Capstone microturbines for several reasons. First: the construction of the shopping mall was performed in stages during several years and microturbines gave us an opportunity to gradually increase power generation as the mall grew reducing initial capital costs. Second: microturbines obtain some excellent operational features — they do not demand much maintenance and 24/7 presence of personnel, are highly automated, have remote control capabilities. Also, Capstone microturbines do not need oil and coolants for operation and consequently we eliminated the need to replenish oil and dispose wastes. Finally, combination of technical and environmental characteristics offered by Capstone microturbines made them an indisputable leader when we made our decision."
