Quantum: Contract awarded
Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. announced that it has secured purchase orders totaling $500,000 for its high capacity, ultra-light weight composite natural gas (CNG) storage systems from multiple leading US integrators. Quantum continues its role as a leading supplier of CNG tanks for light and heavy duty trucks in the United States.
Quantum's ultra light weight high capacity CNG storage systems are enabling Class 7 and 8 heavy duty trucks to support typical fleet applications while reducing operating cost by 30 percent. Quantum offers an all composite tank technology which provides the lightest weight solution in the market which enables heavy duty trucks to carry significantly more fuel on board and operate for long distances without reducing their payload as is required with heavier tanks.
"An increasing number of transportation fleets are realizing the benefits of operating on CNG," said Alan P. Niedzwiecki, Quantum's President and CEO. "These long haul and regional trucking firms are now able to meet their range requirements of over 500 miles with Quantum's newest high capacity tanks."
