LAKE FOREST, Calif. -- Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: QTWW), a global leader in natural gas storage systems, integration and vehicle system technologies, today announced the recent introduction of a new Q-lite tank system for light-duty vehicles engaged in the service industry. Quantum has received initial orders for this system from separate customers including Kwik-Trip and Ledcor Construction.
According to the ShowTimes March issue, there were approximately 10,000 light duty natural gas vehicles either new or retrofitted in 2013. The service industry with companies like Kwik-Trip, Ledcor Construction and several other service oriented fleets, have identified methods to reduce their carbon foot-print and have started to gain economic incentive with the use of these compressed natural gas vehicles.
"The service industry is taking advantage of short distance city routes and the existing CNG infrastructure already made available on these routes," said Mr. Brian Olson, President and CEO of Quantum. "Quantum's technology and product portfolio can be easily adopted across multiple vehicle platforms and sizes and we will remain very active in leveraging our technologies into the full vehicle landscape," continued Mr. Olson.
