Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide Inc. has delivered pre-production compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel storage and delivery systems to ZHRO Solutions LLC as a part of a relationship that the companies formed last spring.
Quantum's Q-Lite CNG tanks, fuel-delivery components and engine/fuel system control software will be integrated with ZHRO's natural gas injection/engine conversion system to build a test fleet for bench and on-road testing. The companies' development agreement is focused largely on aftermarket medium- and heavy-duty truck applications.
‘We are excited about the delivery of these pre-production units and the overall development efforts, as it marks a definitive path toward commercialization with ZHRO Solutions,’ says Brian Olson, president and CEO of Quantum.
Quantum notes that production systems are planned to be delivered to ZHRO in the second half of 2014.
