Quantum Expands CNG Virtual Pipeline Trailer Capabilities, Container Product Line


Quantum Fuel Systems announcecd its Virtual Pipeline Trailers for CNG will have expanded gas transportation capabilities including biogas, hydrogen and flare gas in 2018. By adapting its current design, Quantum’s Virtual Pipeline Trailers are able to better meet the expanding needs of the industries transporting CNG, biogas, hydrogen, and flare gas.

In addition, Quantum Fuel Systems will produce a new Virtual Pipeline Trailer—the VP-20—in early 2018. These 20-foot modular containers will have a gaseous capacity of approximately 220,000 Standard Cubic Feet (SCF) and weigh less than 25,000 lbs. fully loaded. This smaller-sized container enables increased flexibility for customers that require smaller onsite storage capacity and the adaptability between trailers to be transported in tandem for future onsite customer demands.

Currently, Quantum is delivering VP-650TM and VPLITE Virtual Pipeline Trailers to customers. The VP-650TM trailer has a gaseous capacity of approximately 650,000 SCF. With Quantum’s product line expansion, customers now have the flexibility to haul CNG in the size and capacity that meets their needs.

“For some Quantum customers, bigger is better, but for others, the need to transport a really large amount of gas just isn’t there,” said Mark Arold, President of Quantum. “The VP-20 addresses industry needs for a smaller, modular trailer, and allows Quantum to expand our customer base.”

Quantum’s virtual pipeline solution for transporting CNG and other gaseous fuels uses industry-leading, high capacity tanks that are easily transportable domestically and globally.
