“The energy costs of our products are very high and our plant equipment was outdated,” explained Andreas Kirsenhofer, Technical Plant Manager at Machland. “We searched for a combined solution of turbines and a steam boiler to save energy costs.”

With the capacity to generate 200kW of electricity, a Capstone

C200 MicroTurbine® was installed in a combined cooling, heat, and power (CCHP) application to reduce energy costs and the plant’s reliance on erratic local grid power, which failed on average twice a week.

“Machland wanted to install a new steam boiler system for its production,” said Franz Weixelbaumer, Astebo Sales Manager. Astebo is the manufacturer of Machland’s primary boiler and worked closely with Wels Strom GmbH, the region’s Capstone distributor to design and build the new facility enhancement. “The production of steam did not provide enough energy efficiency, so we decided to establish an overall
