  • Quantum Fuel Systems (QTWW) To Unveil Natural Gas Engine 0 comments
    Mar 1, 2013 2:31 PM | about stocks: QTWW

    Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. announced that the company would be unveiling a new engine system during the upcoming 2013 NTEA Work Truck Show. The industry expo will be held on March 5 in Indianapolis. The engine, a compressed natural gas (CNG) system, is an 8.8 liter engine available in naturally aspirated and turbocharged variants.

    Quantum Fuel is a fully integrated alternative fuel company that develops and produces advanced propulsion systems, energy storage technologies, and alternative fuel vehicles. Quantum's portfolio includes technology such as hybrid electric drive systems and natural gas/hydrogen storage and metering systems. Quantum also develops components for hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles.

    The naturally aspirated version will be rated at 250 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque, while the turbocharged version comes in at 350 hp and 660 lb-ft of torque. Due to the limited number of options available in this market space, Quantum feels its entry represents a unique market opportunity. The new engine will enable companies to offer complete, pre-qualified, and fully-integrated CNG drive systems to medium-duty truck manufacturers.

    "Medium-duty truck manufacturers haven't had an option for CNG engines in the larger Class 4-6 truck applications," said Gary Winemaster, CEO of Power Solutions International. "Truck OEMs have asked for an engine with the performance of our 8.8-Liter CNG engine and we'll be delivering later this year."

    "Quantum is proud to be supporting PSI in the new 8.8-Liter natural gas engine development," said Brian Olson, president and CEO of Quantum. "We are pleased to leverage our experience in developing natural gas fuel systems and performing Tier-1 level system integration, validation and volume production of systems."
