Quantum delivers pre-production advanced CNG storage and delivery system to ZHRO

20 March 2014

Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide recently delivered several pre-production units of an advanced CNG fuel storage and delivery system, including the control software for the fuel system and engine, to ZHRO Solutions LLC as part of an on-going development agreement between the two companies. These systems are coupled with ZHRO’s natural gas injection/engine conversion system and are being used as part of a pre-production test fleet at ZHRO and will be used for both on-road testing on heavy duty trucks as well as bench testing.

The ZHRO system comprises its proprietary fuel injectors; fuel delivery system; and electronic controls.

To date, Quantum has received approximately $6.0 million in development contracts from ZHRO and the delivery of these pre-production units represents a continuation of the work to develop a fully-integrated CNG storage and fuel delivery system for robust and cost-effective aftermarket conversions of heavy duty diesel fleets to run on natural gas.

The fuel system module being developed by Quantum includes its high capacity ultra-lightweight Q-Lite CNG fuel storage tanks, the integration of all the fuel delivery components and the control software to operate the fuel system. In addition, Quantum is overseeing the development of the engine control software in order to operate the engine efficiently with ZHRO’s innovative fuel injection system.

The production systems are planned to be delivered to ZHRO in the second half of 2014.
