Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide (NASDAQ: QTWW) has developed a new natural gas fuel storage system that can be used in various vehicular platforms.

The gas storage systems are built around Quantum’s Q-Lite fuel storage technology, are pre-assembled, and can quickly be integrated into existing platforms.

They're lightweight, uses a carbon-composite gaseous fuel storage system, and generally maximizes onboard fuel storage—thus allowing for efficiency in fuel economy.

From the press release:

“We are pleased to provide fully-integrated and pre-assembled advanced natural gas fuel systems to our OEM and fleet customers,” said Brian Olson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Quantum. “Quantum has a strong and innovative record in vehicle engineering and system integration as demonstrated by successful launches of various General Motors natural gas vehicle production platforms, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, military hybrid electric vehicles, electric vehicle prototypes for the US Postal Service, and the Fisker Karma plug-in hybrid vehicle.”

The system was developed at Quantum’s California tech campus. Quantum is a leading company in the area of natural gas fuel storage, alternative fuels, and vehicular propulsion.
