Capstone Onsite Power to Ensures Uninterrupted Telecommunications

An Administrative Nucleus

Mandating an alternate source of power support for its data/telecom system, Boeing consulted with the Houston office of Koenig and

Associates (, representatives for MGE UPS Systems ( MGE UPS Systems specializes in power

quality and reliability, offering nationwide warranty service and start-up capabilities to its customers.

Boeing required 20 kW power for six hours duration. UPS batteries and genset engines were the conventional choice, but not the best fit with the company’s requirements. Genset noise, emissions and

vibration would be difficult to mitigate.

A New Kind of Jet:

The Capstone MicroTurbine

Opting for a different power solution, Boeing chose the Capstone MicroTurbine. Based on scaled-down jet technology, the Capstone MicroTurbine’s one moving part is air-cooled and air-lubricated, eliminating the need for liquid lubricants, antifreeze, other hazardous fluids, or even water. The Capstone solution inherently results in little scheduled maintenance. It is designed to run 8,000 hours (nearly one year nonstop) between recommended minor inspections and cleaning/replacement of filters. Adding

to its ease of operation and end-user transparency, the Capstone MicroTurbine features a compact footprint, relatively low noise and no

vibration, which greatly expand siting options.

Koenig and Associates/MGE UPS Systems installed a Capstone C30 in a pre-existing concrete enclosure near the building’s loading dock, demonstrating Capstone’s ability to integrate easily with available equipment and layouts. MGE’s service personal started up the system and placed it on line. The C30 runs on natural gas and sends electric power 24x7 to the data network and telecom equipment consisting of nine switches, two routers and approximately 1,000 phones. The data/telecom system utilizes dual power inputs: one from the microturbine and one from the grid. In the event of a grid power outage, the C30 ensures uninterrupted service. If the microturbine goes offline, the utility grid is the backup source. Boeing required no special emissions or hazardous materials permitting thanks to


Protect data network and phone equipment from grid outages using an onsite power solution that delivers low maintenance and minimal environmental impact in a compact package with little noise and no vibration.


The Capstone MicroTurbineTM system keeps telecom and data devices running around-the-clock with significant advantages over conventional technologies.

Overhead: Seen from above, the Capstone MicroTurbine demonstrates its small footprint.


• Ensures non-stop data network/telecom operation via 24x7 onsite power generation

• Much smaller footprint and sound signature than battery/genset installations

• Minimal scheduled maintenance compared to battery/genset combinations

• No hazardous liquids or battery/genset installation



• No special emissions permitting thanks to <9 ppm NOx emissions fueled by natural gas

• Low forecasted O&M costs due to air- cooled/air-lubricated design that has just one moving part

Capstone’s ultra-low emissions and air-cooled/air-bearing design.

Doorway: The Capstone C30 MicroTurbine was placed in an existing structure at the Boeing site, making deploy- ment simple.
