Natural gas fuel system integrator Agility Fuel Systems has agreed a multi-million dollar deal to purchase several gas tanks from natural gas, hydrogen and hybrid/electric vehicle technology provider Quantum Fuel System Technologies.
Agility has submitted a $4.8 million (3.75 million Euros) purchase order and signifies the cornerstone of a new agreement that will see Agility as the exclusive distributor of Quantum’s line of large tanks for heavy duty truck application in North America.
Both companies are also currently developing a new mounting system to enhance the safety and durability of on-board fuel storage tanks together.
‘We appreciate Agility’s continued interest in our natural gas tanks and for jointly developing an innovative mounting system that has been well received by heavy duty trucking firms,’ says Quantum CEO Brian Olson. ‘We expect the increase in demand for our natural gas tanks to continue to accelerate as more fleets realise the benefits of using clean, domestic natural gas as a transportation fuel.’
