Three New York-area businesses are installing Capstone combined heating and power (CHP) turbine systems from GEM Energy: Syracuse VA Medical Center; Owens Corning’s Delmar insulation plant in Feura Bush; and Harbec’s plastics manufacturing facility in Ontario.
The Syracuse VA Medical Center is installing eight natural gas-fueled C65-ICHP Capstone turbines and a FlexSet distributed generation control system that provides individual control and performance measurements of the system. To make the best use of space at the 398-bed hospital, the on-site power generation system will be installed on the medical center’s roof, made possible with the lightweight, low-noise and near-zero vibration turbines, according to the company.
Owens Corning’s Delmar insulation plant is installing three natural gas-fueled C65-ICHP Capstone turbines, which will replace a large, oil-fueled heater in the facility.
And Harbec is installing eight natural gas-fueled C65-ICHP Capstone turbines and a FlexSet distributed generation control system. A Thermax ED-10C absorption chiller is integrated into the system to supply cooling in addition to the heating and power of the system.
GEM Energy is a full-service, authorized Capstone MicroTurbine distributor for the states of Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and upstate New York with over 50 advanced power system installations in the region. In addition to equipment sales, GEM Energy designs, installs and services Capstone CHP systems, working with engineering firms and owners.
