Capstone Turbine (NASDAQ:CPST) Executes 1.17 MW FPP Long-Term Service Contract Renewal for Critical Data Center in Connecticut
VAN NUYS, CA / ACCESSWIRE / May 13, 2020 / Capstone Turbine Corporation (www.capstoneturbine.com) (NASDAQ:CPST), the world’s leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that RSP Systems, the Capstone exclusive distributor for non-oil and gas markets in New York, Connecticut and Ohio (www.rsp-systems.com), signed a new Factory Protection Plan (FPP) long-term service contract renewal for 1.17 megawatts (MW) of Capstone microturbines installed at a critical data center in Connecticut.
The innovative Capstone FPP enables customers to have predictable and stable maintenance costs for up to twenty years and protects customers from future cost increases associated with changes in replacement spare parts pricing, commodity price increases, import tariffs and interest rate changes.
The eighteen C65 Capstone microturbines were originally commissioned back in July 2009 and were immediately placed under Capstone’s industry-leading FPP product providing 10-years of complete service coverage, including scheduled and unscheduled maintenance. The recently signed FPP renewal will provide service coverage on the microturbines for an additional five years. The data center uses the Capstone microturbines for 24×7 electrical & thermal generation, and they are configured in Capstone Dual Mode, making them capable of providing back-up power to critical loads in the event of a grid outage.
“This FPP renewal, after 10-years of successful operation, demonstrates the significant reliable life of Capstone’s microturbines when supported under our comprehensive long-term service contract from a top Capstone Distributor like RSP,” stated Jeff Foster, Capstone’s Senior Vice President of Customer Service and Product Development. “Additionally, we are very pleased to see continuing business activity in the Northeast United States, even as the global economy and this region have been dramatically impacted as a result of the unfortunate COVID-19 pandemic,” added Mr. Foster.
“We are delighted to highlight both a very satisfied long-term customer of the Capstone technology and the outstanding work of our distributor, RSP Systems,” stated Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Capstone Turbine Corporation. “We are quite happy, given the uncertain times in today’s business environment, that a data center customer with critical availability needs has chosen to continue operations with the peace of mind that only products like Capstone’s unique FPP service contracts can produce,” concluded Mr. Jamison.
