Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide Inc. has announced a new order from a beverage distributor in the Southeast U.S. for Quantum's 21-inch compressed natural gas (CNG) tank back-of-cab system for a Peterbilt 337 application.
‘We are experiencing increased levels of activity from the beverage industry, which has growing demand for CNG systems and particularly different design configurations,’ says Brian Olson, president and CEO of Quantum. ‘We have introduced a full array of system configurations through our own product offerings and in connection with our strategic relationship with Mainstay Fuel Technologies.’
Quantum notes that its CNG storage system product offerings include several back-of-cab configurations ranging from a single-tank to a five-tank design using different diameter tank products.
Quantum's Q-RailLITE and Q-CabLITE CNG fuel modules are integrated CNG fuel systems for heavy-duty truck applications. The Q-RailLITE product line has been developed to be managed and installed on the traditional open rail-space. Meanwhile, Quantum says its Q-CabLITE product line and the Mainstay module line are both installed behind the cab, allowing for a larger and customized capacity of CNG. The company notes each of these modules contains its proprietary, ultra-light Q-Lite CNG storage cylinders.
