Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide Inc. says it has received an initial order for both its Q-CabLITE and Q-RailLITE compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel modules from a leading refuse company that is expanding its CNG vehicle fleet.
Brian Olson, president and CEO of Quantum, says refuse companies represent an emerging market for its technologies.
‘Pursuing this established natural gas vehicle market provides volume and economies of scale for our in-house production and, at the same time, complements our expanding market position in the carrier and over-the-road market,” he says.
Quantum's Q-RailLITE and Q-CabLITE CNG storage modules are integrated CNG fuel systems for heavy-duty truck applications, including carrier and refuse vehicles. The Q-RailLITE system is installed on the traditional open rail-space on a vehicle, while the Q-CabLITE system is installed behind the cab.
