Firms align to create CNG systems

Sept. 5, 2014

Two firms have joined forces to create a new line of compressed natural gas (CNG) systems for the heavy-duty truck industry.

Mainstay Fuel Technologies and Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies have formed an alliance to offer back-of-cab CNG systems using Quantum’s 21 in. diameter tanks. According to the companies, the initial design, which will use Mainstay’s existing module designs, will incorporate anywhere from one to five of Quantum’s Q-Lite tanks and offer significant weight savings over competitive 21 in. systems.

Under the alliance, Quantum and Mainstay will each offer the 21 in. back-of-cab system based on their respective customer needs, and will jointly collaborate on business development activities and new designs for 21 in. systems.  

The systems will offer capacities of 28 DGE, 56 DGE, 84 DGE, 112 DGE, and 142 DGE. They are also ideal for applications that may require systems for under window use.
