Capstone Allocates Microturbines For Offshore Platforms

Capstone Turbine Corp. received orders for two ATEX-certified C200S microturbines and two C65 ATEX-certified microturbines that will be used at offshore platforms in Malaysia. A global oil and gas company in Sarawak, Malaysia placed the order for the equipment, which will be commissioned in October 2021.

The ATEX-certified microturbines will replace four obsolete TA100 microturbines, currently running as the platforms’ main power generator. The new retrofitted C200S systems will allow the operator to increase power demand for an unmanned drilling platform, while the C65 systems will replace TA100s located on a wellhead platform.

Often used for oil and gas exploration and production, Capstone’s ATEX-certified systems are designed to meet the unique requirements for offshore applications, which includes corrosion protection and other optional features.

“The C200S & C65 units purchased from Capstone will be converted to ATEX Zone 2 compliant units with CO2 fire suppression and ATEX Zone 2 controllers as per the customer’s standards and specification requirements,” said Afandi Abd Hamid, vice president of Serba Dinamik. “The re-design, re-engineering, packaging, installation and commissioning work will be done internally within the Serba Dinamik Group of companies.”

The four systems will run on raw associated gas released from the wellhead, providing a power source to the entire platform. As a result, the installation will be fully automated and operate remotely. The microturbines do not require oil or lubricants to operate, and deliver power via electronics, Capstone Turbine said.
