Capstone FPP Covered Fleet Reaches Record 250 MW with Recent 4 MW Energy Efficiency Long-Term Service Contract Award

VAN NUYS, CA / ACCESSWIRE / October 23, 2019 / Capstone Turbine Corporation ( (NASDAQ:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that BMTec, one of Capstone's EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) Distributors, recently signed a large Factory Protection Plan (FPP) long-term service contract covering 4 megawatts (MW) of Capstone Microturbines, in the energy efficiency market space.

Capstone's European region, which includes Russia, is returning to become a strong source of growth for Capstone as customers continue to look for innovative ways to generate clean, green power. The four C1000's are installed at a shopping center, offsetting high utility prices. This 7-year FPP will provide complete service coverage, including scheduled and unscheduled maintenance.

"Continued awards for energy efficiency long-term service contracts are the bedrock for sustained growth of our profitable aftermarket business model," said Jeff Foster, Capstone's Senior Vice President of Customer Service and Product Development. "When coupled with our recent large Oil & Gas FPP service contracts, our newly improved FPP service offering has become the solution of choice for global microturbine customers, enabling predictable lifecycle costs for up to 20 years," added Mr. Foster.

"I'm proud that Capstone now has 250 MW of our eligible global fleet covered under the innovative Capstone long-term service FPP agreements compared to 256 MW covered under the traditional time and materials approach of our engine based competitors," stated Darren Jamison, Capstone's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We anticipate that this ratio will continue to shift in a positive way in the very near future, and expect for the very first time in company history we will have more MW's covered under FPP than not. Reaching this milestone has the capability to provide the company with stable, recurring cash-flow to fund operations moving forward and profitable, predictable revenue streams for many years," concluded Mr. Jamison.
