Quantum Receives DOT Permit for VP-650 Virtual Pipeline Trailer
Quantum Fuel Systems has received a special permit from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) for its new VP-650 virtual pipeline trailer with approximately 650,000 Standard Cubic Feet (SCF). The trailer is available for immediate sale and deliveries are expected to begin over the next 30 days.
The VP-650 virtual pipeline trailer uses Quantum’s Q-Lite CNG storage cylinders and is capable of storing gas at up to 5,000 psi service pressure. The trailer design and integration will house other unique features, including push button shut-offs, independent lock-off features, and other technology to ensure a full fill is achieved.
Quantum’s VP-650 is mounted in a 45′ hi-cube shipping container and has also been designed for sea transport. Short to medium distance shipping of CNG can be much more cost effective than shipping LNG and other clean fuels.
