Quantum launches high-capacity CNG fuel module

Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide Inc., a manufacturer of natural gas storage systems, integration and vehicle system technologies, has announced that it has completed and launched a three-tank, back-of-cab CNG module with a configuration that can provide up to 180 diesel gallon equivalents (DGEs). Quantum received pre-orders for this new system prior to launching its broad-scale sales and marketing campaign during the second half of 2015. The new system can be configured for 160 or 180 DGEs in a single package and incorporates a 30-in. diameter storage tank. UPS is the first customer of Quantum’s early production Q-Cab 160 series and recently took delivery of early-production systems for installation on Kenworth T680 series tractors.

“We are pleased to have UPS take advantage of our latest technology and system designs, enabling them to reduce weight and drive efficiency through their delivery fleet,” said Brian Olson, president and chief executive officer of Quantum. “Our intimate knowledge of CNG tanks and unique ability to engineer and commercialize our own creative tank products inside our innovative system designs, offers the industry forward looking solutions to satisfy evolving requirements to drive longer distances, minimize weight and simplify the system for servicing.”

Quantum is best known as a manufacturer of the 25 in. diameter type IV composite CNG tank, and the Q-Cab Lite, a lighter weight, storage efficient three tank back-of-cab system in the industry. To that list, they can now add the new lightweight and high-capacity 180 DGE system.
