Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide Inc., a leader in natural gas storage systems, integration and vehicle system technologies, announces that it received an initial order from one of the nation's largest private food distributors for Quantum's industry leading light-weight Q-Cab LITE and Q-Rail LITE compressed natural gas (CNG) storage systems.
"We are developing relationships within new market segments that have initiated a shift away from diesel fuel, despite recent changes in diesel pricing, to take advantage of the return on investment of CNG storage systems," says Brian Olson, CEO and President of Quantum. "Most fleet operators that are adopting CNG want to have direct interface with the provider of the system and the cylinder products, and we are uniquely positioned as the manufacturer of the type IV cylinders and the designer and producer of the complete storage system."
Quantum's Q-Rail LITE and Q-Cab LITE CNG fuel modules are integrated CNG fuel systems for heavy-duty truck applications. The Q-Rail LITE product line has been developed to be managed and installed on the traditional open rail-space. The Q-Cab LITE product line is installed behind the cab allowing for a larger capacity of CNG. Each of these modules contain Quantum's proprietary, ultra-light Q-Lite CNG storage cylinders, which further minimizes weight while increasing fuel capacity.
