Quantum Fuel Systems announced that it has received a special permit from Department of Transportation (DOT) for its new VP-650™ mobile pipeline trailer which will have the highest capacity available in the industry at approximately 650,000 Standard Cubic Feet (SCF). The trailer is available for immediate sale and deliveries are expected to begin over the next 30 days.
The VP-650™ mobile pipeline trailer is capable of moving a significant amount of CNG and utilizes Quantum’s Q-Lite® CNG storage cylinders which are the lightest weight per unit fuel stored. The tanks in the VP-650™ are capable of storing gas at up to 5000 psi service pressure.
The trailer design and integration will house other unique features that will set this product apart from existing trailers, including push button shut-offs, independent lock-off features, and other technology to ensure a full fill is achieved every time.
Quantum’s VP-650™ is mounted in a 45′ hi-cube shipping container and has also been designed for sea transport. Short to medium distance shipping of CNG can be much more cost effective than shipping LNG and other clean fuels. Products such as Quantum’s VP-650™ can open up a much broader group of both domestic and international industrial users of energy to operate on low cost natural gas.
