Capstone microturbines can be used in marine applications to provide onboard auxiliary power or as a range extender for both luxury yachts and commercial vessels. Capstone microturbines can operate on diesel and liquefied natural gas (LNG). The increased use of LNG in onboard marine applications is ideal for Capstone microturbines because they can run on the boil-off that naturally occurs with LNG storage, essentially providing free power from a source that would otherwise go to waste. This helps to increase overall efficiency while simultaneously reducing the carbon footprint of the vessel.
