Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc., a global leader in natural gas storage systems, integration, and vehicle system technologies, today announced it has received additional orders for its Q-CabLITE CNG module from a new customer within the Kwik Trip network of transportation providers.
“Our strategy in the fleet and transportation company market has been to ensure a customer’s transition to CNG is streamlined, as economically advantageous as possible and is a positive experience,” stated Mr. Brian Olson, CEO and President of Quantum. “We have seen evidence in the market that transportation providers are clearly looking for certain system characteristics and payback targets and we believe we are delivering product and service that meets these needs.”
Quantum’s Q-CabLITE and Q-RailLITE™ CNG storage modules are integrated CNG fuel systems for heavy-duty truck applications. The Q-CabLITE product line is installed behind the cab allowing for a larger capacity of CNG. The Q-RailLITE product line is installed on the traditional open rail-space of the truck. Both systems have integral fuel receptacle(s), pressure gauge, safety systems (including shut-off valves), pressure relief device(s), pressure sensors and fuel metering subsystems (including pressure regulator and thermal management). Both modules also contain Quantum’s proprietary, ultra-light Q-Lite® CNG storage cylinder, which minimizes weight while increasing fuel capacity.
