  • USA : Capstone Receives Groundbreaking C600 Order for New OATI Data Center in Minnesota
    June 01, 2015
    Capstone Turbine Corporation, the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received an order for a 600-kilowatt microturbine system to be installed in the OATI data center and office facility currently under construction in Bloomington, Minnesota.

    "This is a groundbreaking project because for many years the prevailing theory was that the Midwest was not a hospitable market for cogeneration and trigeneration projects due to poor project economics and the conservative nature of the market here," said Justin Rathke, President of Vergent Power. "Lower natural gas prices coupled with rising electric rates have created an opening for best-in-class CHP systems, and the additional benefits of the Capstone solution are a great fit for an innovative and visionary company like OATI."
