Capstone wins order for Indonesian cement plant
Published: 21 July 2014

Capstone Turbine Corporation has received an order from Indonesia for a Capstone C800 system to power a cement factory in Balikpapan, Indonesia.

The order was secured by Serba Dinamik, Capstone's exclusive distributor for Indonesia, Malaysia, and Brunei and is expected to be commissioned in September 2014.

The cement factory will be powered exclusively by the Capstone C800 microturbine. After securing a steady supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to replace high cost diesel fuel, the factory has turned its attention to a more cleaner power generation option to replace their existing diesel reciprocating generation equipment.

The C800 is a standalone unit, meaning the cement plant operates independent of the electric utility and relies solely on the microturbine for its entire electrical load.
