Westport has placed a new expanded purchase order for Quantum’s compressed natural gas tanks and commitments for deliveries through 2014 based on volume levels achieved during the year. The new equipment will be installed in light-duty vehicles.
“We are excited to be expanding our relationship with Westport and being identified by Westport as a key fuel storage supplier for their natural gas vehicle programs,” said Brian Olson, President and CEO of Quantum.
Quantum’s Q-Lite family of tanks and systems have provided several options for the light-duty, medium-duty and heavy-duty markets. Extended range packaging has been essential for the continued growth of compressed natural gas applications.
Moreover, the Q-Lite cylinders have been designed to maximize the internal volume to store more compressed natural gas than any other competitive products in the market.
