Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide Inc. says it has received orders for its Q-CabLITE compressed natural gas (CNG) module from a new customer within Kwik Trip Inc.'s network of transportation providers.
Kwik Trip – which operates a large chain of convenience stores in the Midwest, as well as provides CNG refueling and runs its own natural gas vehicles – maintains a subsidiary called Convenience Transportation LLC that hauls loads for various customers in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois.
Quantum's Q-CabLITE CNG storage modules are used specifically in heavy-duty truck applications, where they are installed behind the truck cab to allow for a larger capacity of on-board CNG. The system features integrated fuel receptacles, pressure gauges, safety shut-off valves, pressure-relief devices, pressure sensors and fuel metering subsystems. It also incorporates Quantum's proprietary Q-Lite CNG storage cylinder.
