Yarmarka Shopping Center
It was easy for of cials of the Yarmarka Shopping Center in
Ukhta, Russia, to choose the new mall’s energy source. They could pay outrageous utility bills or install an onsite Capstone MicroTurbine® power plant in a combined heat and power (CHP) application and pay less than half the expected utility costs. Microturbines were the clear choice.
An added bonus: the Capstone system would allow for a gradual increase in power output as the new mall expanded and energy demands grew, thus reducing future capital investments.
Today, three Capstone C65 microturbines sit quietly under the shopping mall’s of ce building. Seven additional C65s and one C1000 are housed in a specially-designed building alongside the mall. Together, the 11 natural gas-fueled microturbines run around the clock, providing all power and heat to the 30,000-square-meter (322,917-square-foot) shopping mall and accompanying warehouse. Not a single kilowatt (kW) of utility power is used to support the large ve-level shopping center.
“The combination of technical and environmental characteristics offered by Capstone microturbines made them the indisputable leader when we made our decision,” said Alexander Yasyulya, Chief Engineer of the facility. “We analyzed existing products in the distributed generation market and chose Capstone microturbines for several reasons.”
