The NBA announced on Wednesday that it has selected three potential new indoor propane suppliers, including a company that will build the gas turbine used in the Denver Nuggets arena and home arenas.
The NBA said that the company is the Advanced Propane Group (APG), a Denver-based company with experience in the building and construction of wind turbines.
APG has built a total of 22 wind turbines around the world.”APG has developed a proven technology and has the expertise to provide a world-class energy infrastructure for our cities,” the league said in a statement.
“We are pleased to confirm the company’s commitment to building the first generation of the APG energy infrastructure in the United States and are excited to have the opportunity to work with APG on this project.”
The NBA also announced that APG will design and build the arena and arena home in downtown Denver.
The arena and homes will be powered by the APC1000, which is a 1,000-megawatt wind turbine that has the ability to produce up to 2,400 kilowatts of energy per hour.
The turbines are designed to operate at temperatures as low as -20 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 45 degrees Celsius).
The first APC100 units are expected to be delivered in 2019.
The first-generation APC 100 will produce up the equivalent of around 200,000 megawatts of power per year and will be capable of producing a whopping 12,000 kilowatt hours per year, the NBA said.
The APC 1000 is a new design of the turbine that is designed to produce electricity using the same technology that powers wind turbines in wind farms.
APC is also a company known for developing a variety of energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly products.
The Denver Nuggets are the primary tenant at the arena, which was built in 1999, and the Denver Coliseum, which opened in 2012.
The Nuggets’ home arena has the potential to host a basketball and basketball-related event in 2019 and 2020.
