JAC Chassis to Get Q-Lite Tank Rigs Under $2.5 Million Contract

Quantum Fuel Systems (NASDAQ:QTWW) has disclosed a $2.5 million contract to supply its Q-Lite brand compressed natural gas fuel systems for vehicles by Southern California’s Greenkraft.

Greenkraft imports chassis from China and installs dedicated-natural gas GM engines. The Greenkraft trucks are to have CNG fuel system assemblies from Quantum.

Quantum thus joins GM, which supplies engines for Greenkraft’s upfits of trucks from JAC, China’s Anhui Jianghuai Automobile.

Ryder System is a key Greenkraft customer (F&F, May 24 and October 23, 2012).

“Quantum’s advanced storage systems are configured to enhance the performance of these CNG medium duty trucks, which are ideal for small businesses such as food services, electric and construction contractors, pest control, plumbing and landscaping contractors,” Quantum CEO Brian Olson said in a release.

“The design incorporates two ultra-lightweight composite natural gas tanks per truck, with modular high-strength brackets, aesthetically pleasing covers and integrated refueling receptacle,” Quantum says, promising “dramatic weight reduction, increased fuel storage capacity, and the capability to quickly integrate.”
